The National Outdoor Event Association (NOEA), the UK’s leading trade association for the outdoor events industry, recently hosted its 16th Annual Convention and Awards dinners at the Pump Rooms in Bath to recognise the very best of event companies, support services and people.

Laceys Solicitors were proud sponsors of the Event Team of the Year category, which was for the best proactive and effective event team working on an outdoor event.

The shortlisted of finalists were Black Deer Festival, eat:Festivals, English Heritage Events, Bournemouth 7s Festival however English Heritage Events were the ones who took the award on the night.

Alistair Turner, Chair of the Judging Panel said:
“Winning a NOEA Award really means something and is a hallmark on the website of every winner this evening. To get onto the shortlist alone is a great achievement, the competition is incredibly tough, and the judges only recognise the very, very best.”

Philip Day, Partner at Laceys, has acted as legal advisor to NOEA for 15 years and specialises in licensing, particularly licensing events. Both he and his colleague Brendan Herbert organise their own events – in Brendan’s case the 2000 Trees Festival and in Philip’s, the Ringwood Fireworks Display and Christmas Lights Switch-on.  Apart from licensing, Laceys can also provide advice on all issues relating to event organisation, including agreements relating to the use of event sites, ticket terms and conditions, contracts with suppliers, employment issues and dispute resolution.

If you need any advice on Licensing matters please contact Philip on or call 01202 755980.

“I’ve been working with Sam for a couple of years on a very wide range of marketing communications. Sam has a natural attention to detail and a refreshing attitude to the work we’ve collaborated on. The launch of the new Laceys site is now the benchmark for the brand and business offering. Sam has been at the heart this journey and has been a key driver for the consistency any strong brand should have. It’s exciting to be working with a solicitor’s firm that really understands their vast audience.”
