How you and your community can make changes

The Local Centres Regeneration Toolkit

Organising an event can be a great way to draw people to the High Street. Events can be about almost anything, from a music or theatre performance, a book exchange, a photo exhibition or a tasting event of what’s on offer on the High Street.

The Local Centres Regeneration Toolkit sets out guidance on how to organise events for less than 500 people in easy step by step stages. It helps you identify who you need to go to for guidance and advice; what licences and other forms, if any, you need to complete; and includes useful tips and guidance on how to run an event. The Toolkit also includes examples of events which have taken place across London in order to give you some inspiration for your own neighbourhood.

For more information on how to run your own event please go to the Event Planning page of Sutton Council.
