Ancient Connections wishes to contract a not-for-profit entity or commercial company to oversee, develop and promote a proposed new pilgrim route between Ferns in Wexford, Ireland and St Davids in Pembrokeshire, Wales. There will be a strong focus on developing the pilgrimage product using existing infrastructure (coastal path in Pembrokeshire and related attractions in Wexford) as well as on co-ordinating and marketing related tourism products. The budget allocated for this contract is to deliver specific and identified short term outputs as well as acting as seed funding for the longer-term vision for the enterprise. The successful contractor, be they not-for-profit or commercial, will need to demonstrate an enthusiasm to the long-term vision for the project beyond the scope of the contract deliverables and demonstrate what measures they would put in place during the contract period to ensure sustainability and financial independence once the Ancient Connections project ends in July 2023.
The successful contractor will be able to demonstrate a thorough background knowledge and understanding of the historical and contemporary context of pilgrimage in Wales, the UK, Ireland and Europe. They will have significant experience of working within a pilgrimage context OR transferrable experience in related tourism industries (eg trail walking, destination tourism).
