Event Safety Advisory Group

Here you will find some Frequently Asked Questions about the Event Safety Advisory Group.

What is an Event Safety Advisory Group (ESAG)?

ESAGs provide a forum for discussing and advising on public safety at an event. They aim to help organisers with the planning, and management of an event and to encourage cooperation and coordination between all relevant agencies.

Please see ESAG for further information

Am I likely to be asked to attend Event Safety Advisory Group (ESAG) meetings?

If you are planning a large event or a small event which presents a significant public safety risk (whether in terms of numbers and profile of people attending or the nature of the event activity and/or the challenge of the environment) then an ESAG meeting maybe convened at your request or at the request of one of the group members.

Applicants will be invited to present their application and details of their event to the ESAG.  Please see the Event Organiser’s Checklist which is designed to assist persons planning an event and presenting information to the ESAG meeting.
