An approved stamp being placed on a formGetting great events running in Selwyn is the focus of two Council workshops in April and May.

The Council is running an Event Permitting Masterclass on Tuesday 13 April to help event organisers with the ins and outs of permits, what you might need and why.

The workshop will give an overview of the process for applying for permits to run an event in Selwyn and what is needed for successful permit applications, and Council staff will be available to answer questions.

It is the first of two workshops from the Council in April and May to support and encourage events in Selwyn, Council Events and Funding Coordinator Cristene Trenuela-Chan says.

“It’s to help encourage events and good events for Selwyn. The permitting masterclass helps us take the scary component out of setting up at an event. It’s helping people understand both what permits they need to run an event and why they need them. It also lets you meet the people involved and helps us to support you in your event.”

It will be followed by the Get Set Go workshop at the end of May for people who have an idea for an event and want to learn about how to get started with the basics of planning and running it.

“We know there are people out there with great ideas that can bring some fun, build community, and be a part of making Selwyn a good place to live. We want to encourage that and help people run the best event possible for everyone coming along.”
