Planning an event

We are continuing to follow Government advice issued in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Please see our latest advice here.

We are now able to accept applications for third party events, however all organisers must review our public spaces protocol and fully explain in their application and risk assessment how they will mitigate any coronavirus safety risks.

Each event will be reviewed on a case by case basis and no event which could put both those attending or our staff and volunteers at risk will be permitted.

We will continue to follow the latest government advice and will post updates if the advice changes. Please check individual event details, follow us on social media and sign-up to our email for the latest information.

All event organisers need to give the Trust at least 30 days to process their application. If it is less than 30 days we will not be able to process the application and issue an event licence, which is a requirement for holding an event on Trust land. In some cases we will need 12 weeks’ notice for larger events which may require more processing time to ensure the event can be run safely.
