Event management and delivery

Event management has been significantly impacted due to COVID-19. Although the legal restrictions have now been removed, the government are still advising event organisers to consider the risks and consider what could be put in place to protect any customers that may be clinically vulnerable or feeling hesitant about mixing with large groups of people they do not normally come into contact with.

You will need to consider if you need to complete an Event Notification Form for events where there are at least 500 persons attending.  Please note a minimum of 12 weeks’ notice required.   

Once submitted your Event Notification Form will be circulated to relevant Safety Advisory Group members (i.e. Highways, Police etc.) who may contact you for further information. We will then let you know what permissions and licenses you need to apply for, and may contact you in regards to Environmental Health matters.

We will make all relevant services aware of your event.  The event organiser is responsible for putting on a safe and compliant event and should ensure all necessary permissions and licenses are in place before it goes ahead.

If your event impacts on the highway you should read and follow the advice provided by the highways team at Leicestershire County Council www.leicestershire.gov.uk/plan-an-event
