Hire a Newcastle park for an event

Newcastle parks and countryside sites are ideal locations for staging events, running outdoor activities, film locations and wedding photographs.

We are happy for people to use these outdoor spaces as locations for events. We can discuss your requirements and accommodate you if possible. It is important that you contact us at least 6 weeks before an event takes place.

Permission must be agreed with the Parks Manager before events take place. Once the event is agreed in principle an event plan must be produced. We will provide guidance for producing this. A fee will be agreed depending on the size and nature of the event.

Outdoor businesses

Newcastle parks already host a number of outdoor businesses such as boot camps and outdoor gyms. You must contact us if you wish to set up any business activities in one of our parks as you will require licence agreement (fee applies). Any businesses conducting unauthorised activities will be asked to leave the park.

Photography and filming in parks

A park license with fee will be required for commercial photographers.

Our parks and countryside sites provide perfect backdrops for wedding photographs. Park staff can advise on the best locations.

If you are interested in using any of our sites for filming, a license will be required (fee applies).
