Organising an event

We maintain an Events Safety Advisory Group (ESAG) for public events, and have established partnerships with selected agencies which offer specialist advice. The ESAG considers the requirements of large scale public events with more than 500 expected attendees. Smaller events may also require the involvement of ESAG depending on the event. The Event Safety Advisory Group (ESAG) is not a decision making body, and the group cannot stop an event taking place. Its role is to give advice and guidance to organisers on safety related aspects of their planned event.

Event organisers are asked to complete and return an Event Notification Form to for the consideration of ESAG.

Resources for events support will be allocated in consultation with partners from the Events Safety Advisory Group. This is to ensure suitable and safe delivery of events within the county borough. Opportunities to attract new, economically impactful events will be considered on a case by case basis.

The events toolkit

The toolkit is the first port of call for event organisers to get the information they need about all aspects of event planning. It is made up of:

  • a 40-page guide
  • a website
  • a set of report and plan templates
  • other relevant downloadable information
