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
If you’re not sure about any of the above, please contact the Events Team on firstname.lastname@example.org who will be happy to advise.
