Events on council owned land
Any events planned to take place on council-owned land or roads will be cancelled until 1 July 2020. This position will be continually reviewed to reach a decision at the earliest possible opportunity regarding events beyond this time. Event planners are advised that planning for events beyond 1 July will be at their own risk and should contact the Events Team.
We recommend that all Event Organisers speak to the Business Compliance Team prior to submitting their event plan. You can contact the team via email email@example.com and someone will contact you to discuss your event.
There is also information available on our Business safety advice webpages where there are links to guidance on how to operate in these times.
For most events we need 12 weeks notice to make sure you meet all statutory requirements.
For any event you plan on holding in Gateshead it is important that you complete the event enquiry form.
Once you have completed the above Event Enquiry, we would be pleased to receive your event plan to ensure that your event is run safely. Please complete and return the Event Plan [884.11KB].
