If you’re holding an event in a public place you must get permission first, either from the local authority or the property owner.
Some things require a licence, such as:
Please contact your local authority to check which licences you’ll need. You can also visit www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk for more detailed information.
Please remember that although we’re here to help you organise and plan, you are responsible for your activity or event rather than Yorkshire Cancer Research. This is why we recommend you take out public liability insurance for events such as sponsored walks, family fun days or sports events.
If you’re holding your event at a specific venue, check if their insurance covers your activities.
If you’re holding an event involving a large number of people it’s a good idea to have first aid support.
Whether you’re selling cupcakes or putting on a BBQ, food safety laws apply. Check with the Food Standards Agency at www.food.gov.uk for more information, just to be safe.
