Events and filming during coronavirus

All events in council owned parks must follow the latest government guidelines.

If you're applying to hold an event you'll now need to complete the application form, submit a risk assessment and a coronavirus statement.

The process of granting approval for an event may take longer than normal. Approval will not be granted until we're satisfied that the event can be held safely.

All park community rooms and buildings, including public toilets are currently closed.
