Booking a Park
If you want to apply to hold an event in any of our parks or open spaces, this can be done conveniently online using our partner EventApp (external link).
When you first apply you will need to register your details to set up an account. The next time you visit you can simply login and the system will remember your basic details, and you can check the details of your application.
All event applications must be received within the times stipulated below to allow sufficient time for the event consultation and application process to be completed.
- A small event for up to 500 people we require a minimum of 6 weeks prior to the event date
- A medium event for up to 2,000 people we require a minimum of 3 months prior to the event date
- A large event for up to 10,000 people we require a minimum of 6 months prior to the event date
- A major event with more than 10,000 people we require a minimum of 9 months prior to the event date
Completing an application
Before you apply please read Outdoor Events Policy 2014 (PDF, 241KB). There are charges to hold events in Haringey parks and open spaces which vary according to the size and complexity of the event. Further details on charges can be found in the document 2016/17 Park Events Fees and Charges (PDF, 123KB).
You should also initially contact the Parks and Leisure Services Team to check that the space you wish to use is available on the date you want.
As part of your application you will need to provide supporting documents. All events are required to have an event safety management plan, event safety checklist, risk assessment, site plan, a completed indemnity form and public liability insurance with a minimum cover of £5 million.
For assistance with planning your event you can visit the London Events Toolkit website (external link) as it has a whole host of resources to help you.
All documentation needs to be submitted within two weeks of your original application date. Failure to adhere to this could result in your application being delayed and your event being rejected.
Submitting an application
Once you have submitted an application you will be sent an email confirming that we have received your application. Submitting an application does not mean that you have booked the space. Your application will be assessed for its suitability for the location, time, date etc and will go through an events consultation process with relevant stakeholders before a decision is made. We will then advise you in writing if your application has been accepted.
Please note: there is a non refundable application fee that will be charged whether your event goes ahead or not. The price of the application fee will vary depending on the size of your event. The 2016/17 Park Events Fees and Charges (PDF, 123KB) will give more information.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 8489 1418.
