I am in my 4th year hosting a Christmas event which sees over 600 people attend every year.
The annual event, which took place last weekend is held at a Cathedral. Over the last couple of years we have been asked to pay for the security ourselves, however i have learnt that the venue, which is classified as a ‘high risk’ venue in the city, has their own contract with security and provide them with radios and mics per shift.
My question is- Who is supposed to pay for security- me as the event host using the venue or the venue.
I just need to know where we stand as this is quite a heavy cost for a charity event.
