All events in Wolverhampton are currently prohibited due to the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic. Events will resume when government guidance no longer advises against gatherings. This will not likely be before 31 May 2020.
If you're planning an event, whether it's a street party, fun day, concert of drive, we recommend that you complete the Event Organisers Questionnaire. This allows the council which is part of a Safety Advisory Group (SAG) to help communities organise public events safely.
Do I have to give notice?
It isn't a legal requirement. However, if you don't notify SAG, we will not support your event.
How do I book a park or green space?
If you want to hold an event on a park or green space owned by the Council, you will need to obtain permission and pay a fee. You can do this by following the instructions on the Parks page.
How much notice is required?
For the council to offer support, you need to give at least 3 months notice. For events attracting over 1000 people, 6 months notice is required.
You will need to submit a ‘Safety Advisory Group Event Questionnaire’ which can be found in the Downloads section on this page.
Submit the form to PESAG@wolverhampton.gov.uk.
