9.2 Water

It is vital that you make drinking water available to attendees, participants, staff, volunteers, contractors, performers, etc at your event particularly if:

  • you are expecting large crowds (also see 6.9)
  • the weather is likely to be hot (also see 6.15)
  • participants are required to walk a long distance e.g. in a parade
  • there is the chance participants will overheat (e.g. if there is a mosh pit, space is limited, etc.).

It is a legal requirement that you have free drinking water readily available when selling alcohol (see 6.8).

For information on the sustainable use of water, see 12.3.
