This book will help you to research, plan, organise, manage and deliver any event, match, show, tournament or function that will be attended by more than a handful of people.

You may be running a gymkhana, fete, fun run, China New Year Celebrations, steam fayre, half marathon, carnival, school sports day, jumble sale, tennis tournament, car boot sale, model aircraft show or even a huge pop festival or Formula 1 car race. If you are, and you have not run one of these before, this book is definitely for you.

Whatever the event it is, the principles are the same.
