The Police have no general duty to preserve public safety at any public event except where there are imminent or likely threats to life. This means officers will not be used to police events and organisers need to plan for a safe event which does not rely on a Police presence.
Guidance for event organisers
If you are holding an event, you will be legally responsible for the safety of anyone attending. For further information please:
