Your event and promotion in the city

The city boasts many parks and green spaces and some of these are located right in the heart of the city centre. Find out more about organising your event or promotion in the city.

Filming permissions

We are keen to encourage film and television companies to film in the city and will provide help and assistance where possible. Some Southampton locations that you are interested in using may belong to the council, be part of the highway or privately owned. The events team can advise on possible suitable locations, liaise with other council departments on your behalf and pass on contacts of some private locations to assist in the smooth organisation of your shoot.
