Key steps for event organisers

If you are organising an event for the public on public land, the city/district streets or in a district council owned park, you need to make sure you have the right plans in place to ensure the health, safety and welfare of anyone working at or attending the event.

In this event guidance section, we set out what you need to consider when putting on an event in Lichfield District.

Applying for permission to hold an event in 2021 and 2022

We are reviewing the application process and will update this page soon.

If you are considering running an event in Lichfield District, you will need to apply for permission, if your event:

  • is an outdoor event that has more than 500 people in attendance at any one time during the advertised event opening hours
  • is an event that is open to the general public and involves one or more consented activity (street trading, alcohol or entertainment)
  • may require a formal road closure

You do not need to use this application form if you are looking to organise a street party for national celebrations, street play/games or for commemorative parades. If you do need to apply for a temporary road closure to enable one of these activities to take place safely, you will need to apply for a road closure.
