A successful public event is created when the preliminary planning has started on time and the people in charge have been appointed, potential co-workers have been arranged and the necessary permits are in order. All instructions, rules and regulations must be followed. The lessee is responsible for the safety of the participants at their event and for familiarizing themselves with the rescue plan of the premises.

Announcement of a public event

The organisation of a public event at a venue must be notified to the police in writing. An public event means entertainment events, competitions, performances and other similar events. There is no need to report private events at Culture House Fanny, with a few exceptions.

Notification to the police must be made, for example, in the following cases:
• the organizer considers the event to require law enforcement officers
• the event requires a noise report
• the event requires traffic arrangements
• areas are reserved for public parking
• program numbers require security measures such as a demarcation of safe areas, rescue personnel or equipment.
• alcohol will be served at the event
