Hospitality & Corporate Events
Heaton Park runs a varied programme of activities and events to encourage outdoor recreation, education, entertainment and public access.
If you would like information regarding an upcoming public event please visit the whats on page for event details and/or for individual events contact details.
If you would like to run an activity in Heaton Park, it will need to meet a number of objectives. Events are carefully considered to provide a range of recreational oportunities, which enhance the reputation of Heaton Park, and give the public access to affordable, noteworthy and well run events without detracting from the overall nature of the park.
We will also need to consider the availability of a particular site for an event against the overall impact it would have on the park and the park users throughout the year.
