Useful Information for Suppliers

Dependent on the service you’re supplying, Heritage Venues Ltd should be provided with the following documents well in advance of the event, and a minimum of one month beforehand. If you are uncertain about any of the requirements and which will apply to you, please contact us on 01628 906040 or email
Please ensure all documentation submitted will be current for the date of the event.

Please provide a copy of your Public Liability certificate.

PAT Test Certificates
Required for all powered electrical equipment you’ll be using at the venue.

Risk Assessment & Method Statement (RAMS)
Please provide the risk assessments you operate by as standard and to which your operatives are trained. An event-specific method statement should be provided to clearly explain how you will operate on the day. The method statement is required to ensure safety of people and property while operating on site, and will include (not exhaustive) working from height/ladders, use of electrical equipment, flammable liquids, fairground rides, inflatables, etc. Where your activity is deemed by us to be high risk, we may request a site visit beforehand to discuss and agree the method of working. We reserve the right to refuse access if correct documentation is not received and approved by us in advance, or for you to cease activity on site at our request if your operatives are not adhering to the approved RAMS. Our aim will always be to deliver a perfect and safe event to our clients, to fully cooperate with all suppliers to that end, and we will not unreasonably withhold approvals or make unreasonable demands. If you have any questions please email Jamie Charles-, cc Val Pearson –

Ladders & Equipment
Please bring your own tested ladders and all equipment required to undertake your booking on site.

A separate agreement will be drawn up with external caterers for use of Heritage Venues spaces, equipment or preparation areas and will cover recycling, waste disposal, fire safety procedures, inventory etc. RAMS as above will be required, together with food hygiene/allergen certification specific to the staff in attendance.

Please note that a sound limiter in the Great Barn is set to 96dB. Our Facilities Manager will be present at your set-up/sound check to help set your limits to this to avoid cut-out.

Bands are advised to bring a mat for drum kits as the vibrations can sometimes set the limiter off, and spikes will damage the floor.
Set-up will usually be just before or just after service, but please liaise with your client for specific timings.
Our Bose sound system is used for background music and speeches only, and is not available for use by bands/DJs. If you have any technical questions, please email Jamie Charles:

Please remove all flowers and containers from site the morning after an event, and let us know if you are leaving anything behind to avoid confusion with the next event!

Setup Times
Your set-up time should be arranged with the client, and access on the morning is generally from 8am. However, for long set-up items such as lighting rigs please contact us as soon as your booking has been confirmed so we can agree access times around our cleaning schedule and timing of the next day’s event. Please also note that where we have availability, we allow clients access the previous day for set-up. Again, for lighting rigs etc it’s necessary for them to be put up while the barn is empty, and this will need liaison with us. Where requested, we confirm to our clients 7 days in advance whether the day before is free. If you would be unable to set up on that day please let the client know.
