Keeping it safe and legal
We want your event to be a success and run smoothly, so have put together some points to consider when organising your event. Its is always best to check with your local council when setting up an event to make sure you have everything covered.
Its important to consider any potential risks surrounding your event. Depending on your event you may need to have first aid cover available.
Some useful information on organising your own event can be found at the Institute of Fundraising. You can download a safety-policy-risk-assessment-template
Public entertainment and alcohol licence
If your event involves the sale of alcohol and/or live or recorded music, dancing, showing of a film or performance of a play, an indoor sporting event (including a boxing or wrestling match), or any entertainment of a similar nature, you may need a licence. Speak with your local authority, the police and other relevant parties as necessary. If you are holding an event in a public place you must get permission form the landowner.
Ensure you follow food hygiene procedures and rules whether the food is for sale or not. To find out more about how to prepare, store and sell food please take a look at the Foods Standards Agency website.
