Identify a Venue
A good location for an event like this is a large public open space with vehicular access. A promenade by a beach is good. Or perhaps a country park or local recreation ground. Even a shopping centre. Pub car parks are a good idea too. Some events were also held on private land. It’s difficult to know in advance how many people will attend but assume between 10 and 30 Bongos.
Activities & Refreshments
Although it’s not essential, your venue should be child and dog friendly. Is there somewhere nearby to get a cup of tea, a sandwich or a Sunday lunch? Is there something for the kids to do while the adults talk about Bongos? What happens if it rains? And, importantly, is there disabled access?
Once you have chosen a potential venue take a few moments to double check that someone hasn’t already organized a meeting nearby. The full list can be found at https://igmaynard.co.uk/national-bongo-day/
If you are holding a meeting on a public space it is not always necessary to obtain permission. But you should ensure that no obstructions are caused to public rights of way. If you intend holding a meeting in a pub car park or country park or on private land you need to obtain permission from the landowner or manager.
