Add an event

This tool helps you add events to the website.

About this tool

Complete this form to generate the text you need to upload content to the website.

Enter the information into the form below, then select the output you require.

The fastest way to add posts to the website is to use GitHub. If you have a GitHub account, you can add files directly to our GitHub repository via a pull request. The tool can step you through the process of creating a new post directly.

If you have difficulties using GitHub, you can also send the information via email. The tool can:

  1. generate an email to send to our central team to post the information
  2. generate a file that you can send to our central team via email to post
  3. copy the information the central team will need to your clipboard; you can then paste this information into an email to send to our central team to post

This form might not work on your departmental IT system.

There is nothing we can do to fix this. If you experience problems, try using a personal device instead.
