Friends of The Parks Events
Types of Events
This category is for all revenue events and will usually have an entrance fee attached. Commercial events are typically accessible to the general public for a fee. This category can include, outdoor cinemas, music festivals, funfairs and circuses.
Community events are those which are organised by the community or voluntary groups in direct support of the community for the benefit of the Borough or local residents. A community event must always be offered with no entrance fees to the public or otherwise this will be considered a commercial event. These events will not provide significant advertising or other commercial benefit. The organiser must provide proof that they are not profiting from allowing third party contractors, e.g. commercial stallholders to attend their event. Therefore fees, where levied for community and third sector stallholders, will be set at an affordable and accessible level.
Note that school events by default are classified as a Community Event, and as such will see lower fees applied.
Not for profit and/or charitable organisations must be able to provide a UK charity number and also demonstrate that all surpluses from the event will be for the charity.
An event that is organised and run a local friends of the Parks group, they must be recognised as a fully constituted group and covered by the friends insurance. All profit generated from these events must be allocated to the group applying for the event.
