A larger event, such as a charity run, community picnic or food and drink festival, would involve:
- more than 50 people attending
- bringing in infrastructure into the park, such as staging, lighting or a marquee
- playing live or recorded music
If you are planning to hold a larger event, you need to contact us at least six weeks before your event. This is so we can consider the viability of your event and ask you to complete an application form.
Once we have received your form, depending on the size and scale of the event, we may ask you to:
- provide risk assessments, public liability insurance and an event management plan
- pay a hire charge
You will also need to follow our public open space procedure.
If you wish to hold an event at Hylands Park for more than 5,000 people, you will need to contact Hylands House and Estate.
