Be it a festival, a wedding or a film night, outdoor events are the 'in thing' right now (mostly because it's summer time) and since we all know the British weather can be temperamental to say the least, we’ve got your summer sorted with this “Essential Guide to Planning an Outdoor Event”.

First and foremost, you need to be prepared for all types of weather, so always ensure you have a plan B in place from the beginning and factor this into your budget to avoid later issues - then you can make a start on planning your outdoor event!

Your summer event sorted!


Always get the boring things out of the way first:

- Get the correct permissions

- Honour health and safety protocol

- Keep your event safe and secure

- Make sure you are always meeting the noise restrictions

- Provide all essential amenities

Then you can start to organise and plan the fun aspects of your event:

- Venue

- Entertainment

- Hospitality

- Décor

Don’t let weather create limitations on the day, because failing to prepare is preparing to fail! And, having read this, if you've decided that planning an outdoor event isn’t for you but attending them is, then don’t worry - The Ticket Factory has it covered. Check out: Festivals & Outdoor Gigs

Festival Season is here!
