Welcome to Barnet EventApp

If you would like to hold an event in one of Barnet’s parks or greenspaces, you can make your application here. 

Please ensure that you have read our supporting documents, in particular the Event Policy and the associated Terms and Conditions

You will also need to read the ‘Before you apply’ section below, which explains  documents required when submitting an application.

If this is your first time making an online application you will need to register with an account to use the site. The system will remember your details and will store your application and any future applications on your account, allowing you to save and submit at your own convenience. 

Prior to submitting a full application, you will need to ‘Make an initial enquiry’ to confirm that the space you wish to hire is available on your required dates. Once you receive a response and the confirmation to proceed, you can click the ‘Apply to hold an Event’ button'.

EventApp allows you to check the details of your application any time and save or edit the application without submitting it. Please ensure that when you are ready to submit that you click on the submit button at the end of the declaration page or your application will remain in 'draft' status and will not be processed. 

Please note that submitting an application does not mean that your event is confirmed. Your application will be assessed for its suitability and will go through a set process before a decision is made. We will advise you in writing if your application has been accepted.


Please note an application submission fee may apply – see Fees and Charges for details. Once your application has been reviewed and if accepted, we will advise of the full fees associated with the application.
