Organising an event

Telford & Wrekin Council are proud to be able to put on several events throughout the year appealing to people of all ages and backgrounds while still embracing Telford’s historic significance and natural beauty. We are delighted to host such a wide range of events from family festivals to art and craft shows and many more in-between these are all an abundant part of the annual calendar.

Whether you are local or just visiting, we aim to ensure our events inspire and entertain. Encouraging people from all walks of life to get involved and be part of something very exciting. All this mixed with a warm blend of local hospitality, enthusiasm and passion.

From smaller scale events to large events we aim to provide activities for all ages and tastes working with the people of Telford for the people of Telford.

Please note: for all large events the Events Safety Advisory Group (ESAG) must be informed. Please forward full details of the event including all relevant paperwork to ESAG@telford.gov.uk, download the ESAG guidance.

We also work closely with Town and Parish Councils, local group and organisations to help them to design, create and promote their events for the wider community. 

Telford and Wrekin council offers a wide range of parks and open spaces ideal for a variety of events and festivals of all sizes.

Working with our ESAG partners, Shropshire Fire Service to ensure all organised events are safety assessed, we recommend that you complete the Event Assessment Matrix. This will help you to identify any risks associated with your event.
