Event Toolkit

If you are planning to hold an event within the Harborough district during the coronavirus pandemic we would like to hear from you. Government guidelines state that you should liaise with your local authority to discuss the Covid Secure controls you are planning to put in place.

The Council is not responsible for approving or managing events within the Harborough district other than those which take place on Council-owned land. The vast majority of events do not take place on Council land. However, we will be involved if an event needs a licence such as for the sale of alcohol.

However, we would like to know about events that are taking place in the district, no matter how small or large, so we can potentially offer advice in relation to being Covid Secure.

Tell us about your event and get advice

To tell us about the event and the measures which will be in place please complete both of the forms below and return it to us by submitting our online webforms. You should first complete and submit the event notification form, followed by the Covid19 Event Planning Form.

If there are queries or concerns about your event you may be asked to submit further information.

If you are planning to organise any event where a number of people may attend, please read our Frequently Asked Questions on holding an event during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Harborough District Council will make all relevant services aware of your event through the Event Notification process. However, the responsibility for the safe and compliant delivery of an event is with the event organiser.

Events on council owned land

Due to the coronavirus pandemic we are currently not accepting applications to hold events on Council land.

Event enquiries should be emailed to events@harborough.gov.uk
