Organising an event
Tell us about your event
We can help you plan, organise and run your event.
Tell us about the event as early as you can to avoid delays and complications. We will decide if you need to apply for any licences or permissions, and give any other advice you need.
Your event details will be sent to relevant departments in the council. They may decide to get in touch with you separately.
We may invite you to a Safety Advisory Group (SAG) meeting to discuss the event with other agencies who may be involved.
In the meantime, read the guidance to help with your planning:
- Event licences
- Health and safety
- Selecting and training stewards
- Road closures, traffic controls and signage
- Temporary raised structures
- Food safety
- Marketing your event
- Regular events calendar
We can hire out equipment for events, such as marquees, staging, crowd barriers, tables and chairs.
