Coronavirus and Events
All applications for events on DDC land will each be considered on merit, in line with government guidance, as to whether the event is able to go ahead. All documentation must be submitted at least 6 weeks prior to the event. Please ensure that along with the completion of the event notification form, the updated event management plan and risk assessment is also submitted to ensure you are in line with all COVID-19 guidance.
For events on non DDC land it is at the discretion of the event organiser in line with government advice including hand washing facilities and provision of hand sanitiser etc. However, we do advise that all event organisers go through the events process to ensure they have access to advice from the various organisations of the Events Safety Advisory Group on public health, safety and welfare. All event documentation would need to be submitted at least 6 weeks prior to the event. Please ensure that an updated copy of your risk assessment is submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org to show you are in line with all COVID-19 guidance.
For further guidance on how to hold an event safely as restrictions ease, see advice on Kent.gov.uk website.
