Guidance for People holding events
The health and wellbeing of Gateshead residents is our first priority. As COVID-19 remains a risk, we expect all event organisers to use national guidance when completing their event plans and risk assessments as part of Gateshead Council's Safety Advisory Group (SAG)/ Events Process.
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.
