Events Policy: Publicity Relating to Events

When publicising events*, Sevenoaks District Council takes care to evaluate a number of factors.  We aim to promote an event where possible if:

it is large event (over 500 people) for which the organisers have applied through the Council licensing system
it helps represent what is going on in the whole District, so that we have a good cover of –and diverse types of – events throughout the area
the event helps reflect or promote the culture or identity of the District.

Please note that a listing of an event does not constitute the Council’s formal approval/endorsement of an event, and the event organiser will be required to obtain all the necessary statutory consents and other consents required by the relevant competent authorities. Our purpose is purely to provide added exposure.

We will not include events which may bring the Council into disrepute or if they are distinctly political in nature.  In terms of which events we choose to promote, the Council holds ultimate discretion.  We reserve the right to withdraw a listing at any time, without reason.

While we endeavour to discover what is going on in the District, we also welcome notifications of upcoming events, with an assumed permission to publish the details.  Please contact business@sevenoaks.gov.uk giving information about what the event is, when, where, contact details and cost, if applicable.

*An event is defined in this policy as: A planned activity in a specific location and for a limited period of time that members of the public can attend. The activity can take place either indoors or outdoors, on public land or in private property. The activity or occasion can reasonably be expected to cause a public gathering that is not part of the normal course of business at that location and time.
