1. Introduction

Whether you're a visitor or a local looking for somewhere special to hold your event, East Devon is an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty offering so much more than a simple event space. 

Boasting breathtaking landscapes, stunning coastline and picturesque parks, we can offer a selection of open spaces, parkland and beaches to provide the perfect locations to hold community, commercial, corporate and private events.

We have created this guide to help you book an event on our land. We have included information on the application process, applicable licenses, documents, useful contacts, frequently asked questions and suggestions that will help you with planning your event.

We recommend that you read this guide thoroughly prior to submitting your application, so that you know what we require from you as an event organiser.

In addition to reading this guide we recommend that you read, ‘Guidance on running events safely’ published by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

We want to make your event experience an enjoyable one and we look forward to working with you.
