Hire our parks
Many of our parks can be used to host events from community days and sporting activities to large-scale corporate events.
We have put together a guide that explains the process of hiring one of our parks/green spaces and what you need to do to make sure your event is as safe as possible. Download A guide to hiring parks in Lichfield District.
To hire Beacon Park, please fill out our online form and notify Lichfield Safety Advisory Group about your event, by filling in a quick form.
If you would like to host an event in one of our other parks or open spaces please call our event officers on 01543 308168 for a chat or email email@example.com.

Special event status
If you are planning to hold an event that includes street trading, such as market stalls or mobile caterers, you may wish to apply for special event status to benefit from subsidised street trading licence fees. .
Lichfield safety Advisory Group (SAG)
Please make sure you notify the Lichfield safety Advisory Group (SAG) of your event via the online notification form.
The SAG is made up of organisations, including the district council, county council, police and fire service etc.
The group may get involved in the planning stages of your event to make sure you have effective safety arrangements, licenses and permissions in place. If you are required to submit your event management plan to the SAG and/or attend a SAG meeting, you must comply with SAG's requirements. Failure to do so may mean that your permission to use the park is withdrawn.
In general events involving fewer than 2,000 people will only be reviewed by the SAG if there is an increased risk.
Event management plans and risk assessments
Whether you are working with the Safety Advisory Group or not, we recommend that all event organisers complete an event management plan and risk assessment.
