To help you with your event

Community activity and events can range in size from a street party for neighbours through to a specific activity aimed at attracting people from a wider area. Here you will find information to help you in the planning stages of your activity.

Street parties by definition are small scale, aimed at the residents in one or two streets without any external publicity - more information to help you make your street party a success can be found at The Street Party website. Anyone looking to organise a street party in West Berkshire is advised to read to read the local doc icon Street Party Policy [31kb] of the Local Authority and complete the doc icon Street Party Application Form. [55kb].

For larger events, whether a village fete or a three day rock concert, the West Berkshire Safety Advisory Group has developed some doc icon guidelines [736kb] which if considered during the planning of an event can help it to run more smoothly.

The resource site for ideas for your Street Party including party planning, advice and support

The Tourist Information Centre offer a service to local event organisers whereby they will sell tickets on behalf of anyone who is holding and event / performance within West Berkshire. Examples of tickets we currently sell include canal boat trips, fireworks displays, wrestling events, Battle Proms, Newbury Show, All About Gardening Show and Watermill Theatre.

Many small scale events and celebrations, such as street parties, are self sufficient. Larger events or new activities, however, may require some additional funding to help them become a reality.
