Fancy putting on a Food and Drink Festival event? It’s easy!

  1. Get creative and plan a food and/or drink-themed event. A quiz? Foodie film night? Cooking demo? If you run a restaurant, perhaps you could host a special theme night, or offer a special menu that could be available throughout the Festival period?
  2. Submit your event via the form below
  3. The Events Team will promote it as part of the festival for free
  4. Host your event and share the memories with us on our social media pages

Some things to think about

  • Could you theme your event or team up with another local business?
  • Ensure you have the right equipment and number of staff or volunteers
  • Decide whether your event will be free or whether you will charge for tickets (make sure you include a link for ticket sales)
  • Ensure you have public liability insurance to cover the event
    Is your event outdoors? Do you need to submit an Event Notification Form to the Safety Advisory Group?
  • Are you planning to carry out ‘licensable activities’? Do you need a TEN (temporary events notice) from St Albans Council?
  • Promote your event and link up with us on our social channels
