Renfrewshire Council

Event checklist, toolkit and drop-in sessions

Are you staging a local event? Check out our Events Toolkit for advice and tips on how to make sure your event runs smoothly.

The toolkit includes all of the information you need to hold a safe and successful event in your community as well as expert advice from our Events, Marketing and Communications team on how to plan, organise, stage, promote and manage the big day.

Our Events Checklist also guides you through everything you need to do, from venue hire to licensing, before your event takes place.

You can view and download the toolkit and checklist by clicking on the links to them in the Related Documents section on the right hand side of this page.

We have also launched a new fund which will help local communities celebrate the festive season in Renfrewshire. The Festive Events Fund is open to community groups who can apply for up to £2,000 to support their own festive events this year. The funding can be used to help with programming and events costs. However, it does not cover the cost of new Christmas lights.

Applications to the fund close on Friday 6 September. You can find out more here
