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.

Give advance notice of a public event

In the meantime, read the guidance to help with your planning:
