We have all been to an event where things are not quite right. We have all experienced where the food queues are too long or they run out of food, where the toilets are dirty, or there are not enough of them or so far away you have to take a packed lunch. Events where no parking or traffic plans have cars parked everywhere are a different frustration. Or where you only heard about the event after it happened because you didn’t find out in time. As a volunteer organization we all do our best and running even the simplest event, calls for a number of things to come together on the day to make it work really well.
To try and help we have developed this template to support your thinking and planning of events and creating a great event. It is not exhaustive but a good start.
