Outdoor Venues

The Town Council manages several outdoor venues including recreation grounds and sports pitches.

It is possible to hire outdoor spaces for events, but account must be taken of their regular use by sports teams in the town.

Holding an event of your own at a Town Council Venue

If you want to hold an event on land owned by the council, you will need permission from us. Before planning your event please contact the Bookings Administrator to make sure the area of land/venue you want to use is available and suitable for the type of event you are proposing.

Anyone can organise an event and an event can be anything from a community picnic or sponsored walk through to large-scale music or food festivals and sports tournaments. We will advise you on the process, deadlines and the documents we will require from you.

Witney Town Council has an event fees and charges policy so please expect to be asked to pay a fee for the use of Town Council land. 

PLEASE NOTE: We will also require the following documentation from all hirers: Event Management Plan, Risk Assessments, Public Liability Insurance and Method Statements.

 

 

 

 Please call the Bookings Administrator on 01993 702309 if you would like to make an enquiry.
