Hold a small event

A Royal Park makes a unique setting. We welcome event organisers to hold events in our parks.

Applying to hold a small event in a Royal Park

The Royal Parks are a major attraction for event organisers. Every year, we host hundreds of small and medium events.

Applications for small events will be considered by our dedicated Parks Events Team. At least 6 weeks’ notice is required. 

Parks events that are typically small or medium events would be: 

  • Walks and runs  
  • Transiting cycles  
  • Community sports competitions 
  • Large picnics 
  • A concert on a bandstand 
  • One-off small performing arts events e.g. outdoor opera, a recital or small theatre production on a bandstand
