Holding a small event in the Royal Parks


There may be limited capacity still available for smaller scale events throughout the year. Applications for small events will be considered by the relevant park office throughout the year.

Small events are typically:

  • sponsored runs, walks, etc. for a few hundred people
  • picnics
  • community sports competitions
  • guided walks
  • one-off small performing arts events - e.g. outdoor opera, a recital or small theatre production on a bandstand - with an expected audience of a few hundred people.

For further information on small events, please refer to the Small Events in the Royal Parks Guide (PDF 103.66 KB).
