Event Equipment Lending

The City of London supports Neighbourhood Events that serve to build community and promote health and wellbeing in a variety of ways. We do this because we value and appreciate the efforts that neighbourhood volunteers devote to organizing events and strive to reduce the barriers while making sure safety and security measures are effectively practiced.  

We know that buying, borrowing or renting event equipment can be difficult for new or smaller resident groups.  Therefore we offer neighbourhood groups some of the equipment needed in organizing events free of charge. 

Please Note: this program is only for resident groups, which are defined as groups of neighbours working to build community in their neighbourhood. This could be a neighbourhood association or an informal group of neighbours who organize one event a year. This does not include churches, schools, or other groups affiliated with formal institutions.
