If you are organising any public outdoor events in the Ashford area, we would like to know about it.

Please complete our Events Notification Form [doc] 231KB as soon as possible to make sure your event can go ahead safely and with any necessary permissions. Please return to events@ashford.gov.uk.

A hard copy of the form can be obtained by contacting the Safety Advisory Group sag@ashford.gov.uk or 01233 330271.

Where a road closure is necessary, you will need to inform us at least 12 weeks in advance of the event.

If you are thinking about organising an event which involves a licensable activity (sale of alcohol, performance of a plays, exhibition of a film, live or recorded music) to members of the public there are several considerations. Please refer to the following:

Temporary Event Notice

If the event is on council land you need to apply for permission to use the land.
