Ad-hoc and transitory events

For events with less than 150 participants, for a duration of less than five hours and without set-up or banners/posters displayed, there is no need to submit any application or venue fees. For such ad hoc use of the space, availability is not guaranteed, but you can write in to us at to check whether there are prior bookings on your requested date. Please read and agree to the Ad Hoc Events Terms and Conditions (PDF).

Organisers of transitory events (e.g. runs or walks) are required to inform and submit details (i.e. route map) to the respective venue owners/managers to ensure that there is no conflict of events happening on the same day. There will be no fees involved if the event participants are transiting through the area.

However, if a setup is required (e.g. hydration points) the setup must not exceed 9sqm; otherwise NRTOL charges may apply.  

Non-Renewable Temporary Occupation Licence (NRTOL)

If your event requires set-up, you must submit an application to obtain a Non-Renewable Temporary Occupation License (NRTOL) for the event to be held on a short-term temporary basis.
