Easter break fun! See the activities running in Haringey for children and young people during the Easter break.

Book a park for an event

Haringey’s award-winning parks are great places to host events. We want our parks to be buzzing spaces, providing entertainment and activities for all communities. 

Read our  Outdoor Events Policy (PDF, 241KB) to help you decide whether a park is the best place for your event. The policy details the types of events we encourage and those we don’t allow. 

Submitting an application doesn’t guarantee permission to host your event in a park.

There is no fee for a very small event - up to 100 people.
