The main purpose of the Chepstow Marketing Group is to make Chepstow a more vibrant town by organising and supporting events throughout the year, aimed at attracting more visitors and tourists and making it a destination that people will want to visit time and time again!
The Group was formed following the regeneration of the centre of Chepstow, in order to continue the work of the regeneration group, and is a partnership between Chepstow Chamber of Commerce, Chepstow Town Council, Monmouthshire County Council, Chepstow Festival, Creative Cultivators and Chepstow Tourist Information Centre. Representatives are elected onto the group by their various organisations.
Funding for the Group’s activities comes from various sources. Chepstow Town Council supports several publications from its marketing budget and the rest of the income is raised from the small fee charged to stallholders at the Mini Producers Market and from sponsorship and donations.
A series of events are organised by the Group throughout the year, which include the Creative Cultivators and twice weekly Mini Producers markets, and musical and street entertainment can be seen on key occasions, such as the weekends running up to Christmas. On a Sunday in October the Town is completely taken over by the Hoggin the Bridge event, which sees thousands of Harley Davidson in Chepstow throughout the day, along with stalls and live music. The Marketing Group also gives support to Chepstow Festival and the Chepstow Heritage Trail, and hires out A-Boards for local community events.
To attract visitors to Chepstow, and to ensure they get the most from their visits, a variety of publications are issued. There is an annual Chepstow Guide (delivered to 43,500 homes by Royal Mail every November), as well as free monthly 'What’s-on’ leaflet', Town Map, 'What to Do' guide, 'Where to Eat' guide, walking guides and more.
