For event organisers



Important step
After your initial planning and organising your head is probably full of great ideas for your function or party. 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 function planner and will give you useful information to keep your function within the law and how to comply with current health and safety regulations. 
Regardless of how small or how big your function or party, whether you're holding your function indoors or outdoors, if attractions, entertainment and professional services are to be used it is the responsibility of the function organiser to ensure the safety of all persons, including all guest attending and helpers, employed or voluntary.     
Please remember that this function planner is a general guide aimed at individuals organising larger parties 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 party 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 function planning.
