Events surgeries

Our Events team is here to encourage, support and enable community, charity and commercial events to take place in Oxford's city centre spaces and parks.

All of the information you need to make an event application can be found on these pages, but we realise that it can be helpful to discuss your plans in person with someone who has a detailed knowledge of our spaces and all the relevant licensing, health and safety and planning requirements. We hold event surgeries so you can discuss your plans, questions and application with a member of our expert team.

Due to coronavirus and social distancing guidelines, our event surgeries now take place virtually. The dates for these meetings can be found below. If you would like to 'drop-in' to one of the event surgeries, please contact the Events team on 01865 252407 or [email protected] for more details.
