Events & demonstrations

Runners In an average year Northumbria Police is involved with over 500 events and 300 protests. These range from small country fairs through to city centre protests and international sporting events like the Great North Run.

All need careful planning so they run smoothly and safely.

Police work with a range of partners, organisations and event organisers throughout this process.

"Events" include marches, parades, fun runs, road races, cycle races, charity walks, music festivals, shows, fetes and street parties.

Remember - careful planning and organisation will help ensure an event is successful and above all safe.
