Toilet facilities

Toilets are important! No one wants to be caught short at an event.

Check your venue has existing toilets and enough of them for the numbers you are expecting. If they don’t you’ll need to look at hiring portable toilet facilities and servicing them during your event to ensure they empty, clean and safe.

And it’s important to remember accessible toilet options - and a good supply of toilet paper!

If your event has food and drinks, you might want to increase the number of loos.

Here’s a bit of a guide to consider:
