Going Green

We’ve made the decision to publish an online-only guide to save the trees and other precious resources that go into producing printed guides. Access the guide from anywhere with your personal log in details.

31st Edition

Back for 2020 in its 31st edition

We’ve been working with organisers since 1988 to help you earn more. And this year we’ve made a big change: the database will be solely online to allow easier access than ever!

The most adaptable and advanced guide yet!

Containing hundreds of event listings and contact details for local authority event departments to help you find the right events for you, The Outdoor Events Directory (formerly known as The Events Guide) is the most comprehensive listings guide for event caterers, market traders and infrastructure providers looking for events, festivals, shows or markets.

We spend September to November meticulously collecting event data so that we can get the content ready for the event planning industry ahead of next year’s trading season.

What’s more, the online database allows you to check new events as they’re added throughout the year, meaning you won’t miss out on potential opportunities to work anywhere in the UK.

You’ll get your own log-in details along with a user-friendly interface that allows you to search for events quickly and easily by keyword, location, category and date. It won’t take you long to get events in the diary with your access to the online Outdoor Events Directory 2020.

The events industry’s best

Every year the Nationwide Caterers Association (hi, that’s us!) works with the NOEA and the AFO to bring YOU accurate contact details for more than 2000 of the finest outdoor UK events taking place.

Together, we want to help you work more and earn more every year and The Outdoor Events Directory is just one of the ways we do that. Want to know more about some other ways NCASS can help you earn more this year?
