Thousands of borough residents and visitors enjoy a wide range of public events on offer in the area every year.

Please note: due to the current pandemic of Covid-19 you need to adhere to latest government guidelines in place for Dudley borough when planning any event. Ensure that you keep up-to-date with changes, which may be sudden or last minute, and ensure your plans mitigate any risks involved and include contingencies for postponement or cancellation.

We encourage and welcome the hosting of events across the borough and we want to help you run a safe and successful event.  The event organiser is responsible for all aspects of the event (including the impact of coronavirus) and needs to consider the wellbeing of attendees and also the impact and potential inconvenience the event may cause for pedestrians and traffic not attending the event.

Below you will find a comprehensive event application form; a step-by-step guide to all aspects of hosting an event of any size.
