If you are planning an event in Blackburn with Darwen, please tell us about it so that we can provide guidance where necessary and promote your event on our website.
Blackburn with Darwen is welcoming a range of diverse events back to the Borough. This is being undertaken with the Covid-19 secure measures outlined by Government. The roadmap is now in Step 4. Further information can be found on the Council’s general roadmap guidance.
Risk assessments need to outline COVID-19 secure measures alongside the standard health and safety issues. Specifically organisers should adhere to guidance around reopening businesses and venues available on GOV.UK and the HSE website.
Certain events may be subject to additional COVID-19 secure measures. This should be read in conjunction with any relevant links and other appropriate sources of guidance for the industry.
Once a comprehensive risk assessment has been completed for the event it should be submitted to the Event Safety Advisory Group together with the Event Management Plan via BusinessSupport.Place-Resources@blackburn.gov.uk. In order to support the safe reopening of events, we can offer assistance and support and will direct you to the appropriate service.
You can use our online form to register your event and we’ll get in touch with you.
