Sport events in Epping Forest
Sports events are one of a number of activities in the Forest for which you require a licence.
Why we require licences
Licensing is part of how we regulate events to make sure the Forest's conservation needs are considered, as well as the needs of visitors, nearby residents and other stakeholders. The process also ensures that events meet our health and safety requirements and other standards we're held to as an organisation. Thank you for your understanding.

We also have sports coaching licences if you're interested in using the Forest to host sessions.

Cancelling an event
If you need to cancel your event, contact us and we'll refund all or part of your fee depending on how big your event was and how much notice you give us.
We always recommend taking out event insurance in case you need to cancel.
