Entering your event details is straight forward. Adding an event allows you to add a link to your website, as well as links to the most popular social media platforms, be it your Facebook Page, Twitter profile or other. Do however pay attention to ensuring that the address fields are entered correctly and that the map preview displays the correct location for your event. This will ensure prompt verification of your details. Once completed and published by you; – the event will enter a dormant phase during which your listing will then be moderated by us to ensure no foul play or unruly material has been submitted.
