Events in Parliament Buildings and its Grounds Policy (2018)

Northern Ireland Assembly
Events Office
Parliament Buildings, Belfast BT4 3XX
Telephone: (028) 90520381


This policy review, once approved, will supersede previous policies issued in: 1999 (Tours); Notes for Guidance 2001 (Functions), the Interim Criteria for Events at Parliament Buildings issued in March 2008, and the Events in Parliament Buildings and its Grounds Policy (2014).

This revised policy takes account of developments and trends over the intervening periods and therefore, better reflects the business needs of Members, the Commission and the Commission’s decision to allow for Parliament Buildings to be available for hire, at designated times, as a corporate event or wedding reception venue. Furthermore, this policy regulation brings together all event related policies into a single reference document for improved understanding.

For the purpose of these regulations the word “event” means function and/or tours requiring hospitality. Tours refers to tour bookings only. Corporate Events and Wedding receptions (CEWR thereafter) refer to events booked under the Revenue Generation plan business model.

Changes to this policy will be published in an All Party Notice and communicated widely within the Assembly.
