Apply to hold an event

To hold an event in East Ayrshire there is now a requirement to complete a simple pre-event application form.

This form should be submitted at least eight weeks in advance of your event, but the more notice you can give the better.

If your event requires a Public Entertainment Licence you must submit your pre-application form before applying for your licence. More information can be found on our licensing pages.
