All supporting documentation needs to be uploaded and submitted within two weeks of your application date. Failure to do this could result in your application being delayed and your event being rejected. 


Events in parks 

Please read the Outdoor Events Policy found on this page.


For events proposed in parks you should contact the Haringey Events Team (using the contact details below) to check that the park you wish to use is available on the date that you want. 


A number of documents including an event safety management plan, event safety checklist, risk assessment, site plan, a completed indemnity form and public liability insurance with a minimum cover of 5 million pounds are required for events proposed in parks. Templates for these documents can be found on this page. 

Street Parties
You can make an application to host a street party in Haringey via this online portal. Please visit Road closures for street parties | Haringey Council to see which roads can apply for closure and the information you will need to submit along with this application. 



You can hold a street party and a very small event in a park (for under 100 people) free of any charge - there is no application fee or park hire charge!


Applications for all other park events are subject to a non-refundable application fee that will be charged whether your event goes ahead or not. The price of the application fee varies depending on the size of your event but these, and all other charges, are detailed in the Fees and Charges document on this page.



All applications must be received within the times stipulated below to allow sufficient time for the application process to be completed.

• A street party on a residential street; a very small park event for up to 100 people; a small park event for up to 500 people – minimum of 6 weeks before the event

Making an application

When you are ready to make an application you will first need to register your details on this site to set up an account. The next time you visit you can simply login and the system will remember your details and those of the applications. You can check the details of your application anytime and save the application without submitting it.


Submitting an application does not mean that you have booked the space. Your application will be assessed for its suitability of the site, time, date etc and will go through a set process before a decision is made. We will then advise you in writing if your application has been accepted.
