Autumn / Winter Events in Buckinghamshire under COVID-19

COVID-19 guidance

Events that are organised by businesses, charitable organisations, and public bodies, may take place. Alongside normal health and safety risk assessment and arrangements, we expect event organisers to have:

  • carried out a thorough risk assessment in line with Covid-19 Secure guidance.
  • taken all reasonable steps to mitigate the risk of viral transmission
  • incorporated Covid-19 secure measures within their Event Management Plan

If you are unable to organise an event safely under the current guidance, you should not go ahead with your event. In these circumstances the Safety Advisory Group would advise against holding the event. If you do cancel an event, please let us know.

Event restriction

We may need to formally stop or restrict an event if the Covid-19 situation changes due to local outbreaks or local sustained community transmission.

If we need to stop or restrict an event:

­ organisers will be responsible for all financial losses

­ cancellation may happen at extremely short notice due to the rapidly changing situation

­ insurers may not cover your liabilities if the event is not properly risk assessed and adequate measures in place, or if you have ignored advice

Failure to comply with the regulations can result in severe penalties.
