This document is to help employers, employees, volunteers and the self-employed, and their customers and attendees, in the outdoor event industry in England understand how to work safely during the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping as many people as possible socially distanced from outside of their household or support bubble, in line with the latest government regulations.
This document has been prepared by the Events Industry Forum with input from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and in consultation with Public Health England (PHE) and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
Public health is devolved in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. This guidance should be considered alongside local public health and safety requirements and legislation in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. For advice to businesses in other parts of the UK please see guidance set by the Northern Ireland Executive, the Scottish Government, and the Welsh Government.
While this guidance applies to England, you should always consider whether there are local restrictions in place in the area where your event is taking place. If your event is in an area that is experiencing a local COVID-19 outbreak, and where local restrictions have been imposed, different guidance and legislation will apply. Please consult local restrictions pages to see if any restrictions are in place in the area.
