Street parties and kit to loan
Easton and Lawrence Hill are the leading Street Party Communities in the country – we are a neighbourly lot!
Easton Community Centre loans out ‘road closed’ signs and bunting for street holding parties. We ask for a £10 donation from each event to help pay to replace kit over time, plus a deposit of £20.
You need the road signs to close your road – you must apply to Bristol City Council at least 8 weeks in advance – apply here. They will ask the applicant to sign an indemnity form on behalf of the street – this is normal.
The Street Party Site explains why don’t need insurance or a risk assessment and has everything you want to know about organising a street party and much more. Larger publicised community events need more arrangements.
To book your street party kit contact Easton Community Centre call 01179 541 409 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Bristol is the Street Party Capital of the UK – see other community centres that lend out signs and bunting.
Residents in Easton and the surrounding area hold 10 – 15 of these private neighbours’ events each year and over 40 streets have held one at some time in the last 10 years.
Street parties play an important role in bringing neighbours together, building unity and understanding and therefore are an important part of what we do as an organisation. As part of our Eastside People + Places project, we will be running a series of information sessions about how to run a successful street party, with UK expert Chris Gittins from streetparty.org.uk. These workshops are for anyone who might be unsure about where to start, has questions about road closure or insurance or just wants a bit of guidance. Chris and Abiir will be able to reassure you that organising a street party in the UK capital of street parties couldn’t be easier!
