I want to organise an event in Leicester

Leicester is a great city in which to hold a public event. However as an organiser, you are responsible for the planning, organisation and operation of your event. You must ensure that your event meets standards for health and safety and risk assessments. You will also need to obtain the relevant permissions and licences.
