Organiser access

This is all the time you will need in the building before, during and after your event. There must be an organiser in the building when the public have access.

Public access

Depending on the nature of your event, you may require security for when your event 'goes live' for members of the public.

Add another date

Don’t worry if you haven’t decided on a name yet, a working title is fine. This can be changed later.

This can be what you are estimating the charge will be to enter your event, if there is any charge at all of course.

This is an estimate of the number of customers attending your event over the course of a full day. Your event may have different sessions, or different parts of the event over the course of the day.

The 1873 hall’s capacity is 385, however if additional portaloo facilities are brought in, this can increase to 584. These numbers will be monitored by security at the main entrance.

Which licenses do you need?

Licenses can be confusing. If you are unsure whether you need a license or not, we can offer guidance.

This is legally required when you have multiple stall holders selling different products to the public. Remember, food traders will require additional documents including an HACCP plan and food hygiene certificates. We are happy to advise on this if you freeze any dates with our venue.

This is legally required when your event will have a paid bar. You require a licensee with a personal licence to apply for this, and any bar staff handling alcohol require basic bar training. We are happy to advise on this if you freeze any dates with our venue. Alternatively, we can be your licensee and run your bar if you would like.

This is required if your event is for over 500 guests at one time, or if it presents a high risk to spectators.
