In general the SAG considers large scale public events, although smaller events may require the involvement of the SAG depending on the event. These events will usually be held outdoors, possibly with marquees or other temporary buildings. Typical examples of events would include:
- Fetes, fairs etc
- Open air concerts and music festivals
- Firework displays
- Processions, marches and carnivals
- Street parties
- Religious events
In exceptional circumstances the SAG may consider an event with unusual hazards or risks held inside a building.
When planning an event involving more than 10,000 people a minimum of 6 months notice should be sought. For an event involving between 500 to10,000 people a minimum of 3 months notice should be sought.
