Help for community groups organising events
On the town council events diary there is a new category – ON LINE EVENT OR ACTIVITY – use this category if you wish to advertise an online-only event. There is also a section with tips on some of the regular activities offered online in Abingdon.
The Market Place can be used by community groups who have charitable purposes or who operate on a not-for-profit basis. There is no charge unless electricity is required. If you would like to use the Market Place, contact the town council to check the date.
When a date has been agreed, read the guidance on the tabs. It is best to plan on five weeks minimum before the date you wish to fundraise as you will need a licence to collect cash. A return has to be made to the District Council Licensing Team to assure that income is going to the correct charity. The link is also in the booking form and you should apply after you have your date and event plan agreed with us. It is straighforward to book with helpful staff. Please note that you must have appropriate insurance.
