Event Safety Advisory Group (ESAG)

Wiltshire Council has established an Event Safety Advisory Group (ESAG) to help event organisers ensure that public events take place safely and successfully. It provides independent advice to event organisers who retain the legal responsibility for ensuring a safe event.

The ESAG group is a multi-agency group, which provides advice and guidance to event organisers, particularly for events that have the potential to pose a significant risk to the safety and wellbeing of participants, spectators and the general public. 

Further information is set out within the Event Safety Advisory Group (ESAG) Terms of Reference
