Epsom & Ewell Borough Council has many areas of open space and recreation grounds available for hire.
Generally these hirers are charitable groups wishing to hold a summer fete or similar event, but sometimes they are commercial organisations wishing to hold large outdoor functions for the benefit of the general public.
Popular venues include:
In order enquire about booking an open space, you will need to complete an online hire of open spaces form and event risk assessment guidance. Alternatively you can download a Hire of Open Spaces Form (pdf - 65kb).
More guidance with regard to the requirements of hosting an event can be found here: Health & Safety Executive Event Safety Guide (pdf - 918kb).
All organisations will need to sign an agreement covering the conditions of hire, provide a risk assessment and supply a copy of their public liability insurance to the value of £10,000,000. Any damage caused to the site will be assessed and may be re-charged to the hirer. A Public Entertainment Licence may be required.
