Events in Waveney
How we can help with your event
Our Culture, Tourism and Sport Team provides advice to event organisers on licensing and heath and safety, as well as support and assistance in the marketing and promotion of local festivals and events.
If you would like to hold an event on Waveney District Council land, regardless of size, the Culture, Tourism and Sport Team is here to help guide you through the application process.
We have put together the Events Guidance Pack, which is a combined booking form and guide to planning an event. It highlights the legal requirements of organising an event on Council land as well as the terms and conditions of land use.
For smaller community events that intend to attract a less than 100 people, the Events Guidance Pack will help guide you through the applicable procedures for smaller events. The guide is designed to steer you through planning an event and will take you through the essentials, such as risk assessments, public liability insurance and health and safety. Each stage is broken down into manageable steps, hopefully making the event application process a lot smoother and achievable for all.
To apply for a street closure for an event or celebration please contact Suffolk County Council. More information is available at http://beta.suffolk.gov.uk/environment-and-transport/roads-pavements-bridges-and-cycleways/events-restricting-the-highway/
If you are interested in advertising an event in the district or would like to use public land to hold your event then please contact the Culture, Tourism and Sport Team on (01502) 523387 or email firstname.lastname@example.org If there are any aspects of the event planning process you require our assistance with, please let us know as we are happy to help guide and advise you.
