The Purple Guide

The Purple Guide to Health, Safety and Welfare at Music and Other Events has been drawn up by the Events Industry Forum in consultation with the UK events industry, including representatives from regional and national Government. It aims to help those who organise music or similar events, so that the events can run safely.

It covers legislation and good practice for Health and Safety as well as other legislation and good practice across the industry including the Licensing Act 2003, the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The guide has been designed to sign-post event organisers and suppliers to the practices and issues that need to be considered when events are being planned.
