Use of Parks
Did you know you can use the Find My Local application to find parks near you or to find the name of the park that you need.
Holding Events in Parks
With more than 8,000 acres of parks and public open spaces more than any other city in the UK, Birmingham has plenty of choice when it comes to deciding where to host your community carnival, fundraising event, fun run and so on.
We are happy for people to make use of our parks for public events but you need to apply for permission and provide full details so that we can ensure that the event meets health and safety guidelines. There is a charge for using a park which covers the costs of administration and services relating to the event. Outdoor events that involve groups of people using equipment or structures such as tables, music or gazebos require permission. Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate private functions such as wedding receptions or corporate functions.
To apply for permission to use our parks or open spaces, please complete the form by pressing the Apply to use a park button above. Before completing the form check what information you may need by reading the Essential Information below and previewing the form.
Complete the questions in the application fully, ensuring every detail of your event infrastructure is included. A PDF version of the application is available below to download should you experience any problems with the online form.
It can take up to 12 weeks for an application to be processed by all parties involved, so please make sure that you apply in plenty of time. Payment if applicable must be made 4 weeks in advance of the event.
City Centre Events Only - to enquire about staging an event or promotion in our city centre spaces such as Victoria Square, Chamberlain Square or Centenary Square please contact our City Centre Management Team firstname.lastname@example.org
