Practicalities of running an event

This section includes practical information and useful contacts to help you get the logistics of your event right.

The Links tab gives contact details for useful local organisations who can help with the practical things you need for your event, like a venue, water and electricity supplies, tickets and first aid cover.

The Resource Centre has lots of equipment available to hire that you may find useful for your event. Whether it’s a meeting, summer fête or social evening, we may have something you need available at low cost to community groups in Sussex. Click on the Equipment tab to find out more.

The services listed below are not provided by the Resource Centre. These are websites and services we feel are particularly useful for small groups in Brighton & Hove, and which are not easy to find by searching the internet.
