Host Checklist

We have put together a handy checklist which will help you make the most of your community event and perhaps spark some ideas from the experiences and suggestion of others.

Date & Venue

What is the best community event date for me

Is the venue the right size for me?

Does it have a Premises Licence including for film? (applies if you are making a profit or fundraising)

Will people at the back be able to see?

Does it have a reliable min 10Mbps
Internet connection? or will I need to download films in advance?

Can I do a test?

Does the venue have Public Liability insurance?

How many events could I hold here?
