For event organisers



Important step
After your initial planning and organising your head is probably full of great fund raising and activity ideas for your autumn event. But before you go any further you need to take time to read this very important section. This is the most important step under our autumn event planner and will give you useful information to keep your autumn event within the law and how to comply with current health and safety regulations. 
Regardless of how small or how big your autumn event, be it just a small harvest festival, Halloween party or a major firework and bonfire display, whether you're holding your event indoors or outdoors, it is the responsibility of the event organiser to ensure the safety of all persons, including the public attending and helpers, employed or voluntary.     
Please remember that this planner is a general guide and we will try to provide you with as much up to date information and ideas as possible. Your first port of call should always be your local council events and entertainment department. Tell them exactly what type of event you're planning to hold, they will then be able to give you all the up to date requirements, help and advice for your local community. Remember your council is there to help you and if consulted early on will save you a lot of confusion and disappointments later with your event planning.
