Organising an event

Blackpool hosts a wide range of successful events each year. 

They come in all shapes and sizes and take place at a variety of locations and venues. Some are organised by event management companies and promoters, others by enthusiastic  organisations, charities and entrepreneurial individuals. 

All contribute to animating our immensely  popular seaside resort,  providing year round attractions and entertainment to visitors and the people of Blackpool.

Blackpool welcomes events

We would like to know about your proposed event and help you make it a success by  guiding you to relevant information like; 

  • Who to inform
  • Permissions required 
  • Links to useful information

these will assist you in staging your event safely. The information you supply will also help the Emergency Services and all those involved in planning events in Blackpool.

Larger events and those needing a road closure will require consideration by Blackpool's Events Safety Advisory Group

Legal responsibility

Regardless of the size of the event it is the organiser who has a legal responsibility to ensure the safety and welfare of all those taking part and attending along with any member of the public who may be affected by the event taking place.
