There is a country park nearby and the Parish council of which i am member is considering holding a summer fete. I have looked briefly at the Green Guide and also believe there is a purple book.

For the site to be safe and fit for a large event which is our main concern

1. does the Fire authority give free advice regarding the number of exits and site capacity ?
2. do we need a consultant and have to pay for such advice ?

There is the DCLG guide which I think you are calling the green guide, there is the purple guide HSG 195 which is being revised but not available yet and you will have to use the old one.

It is very unlikely the fire service will help but you could try them and you as the Responsible Person (RP) under The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 you could appoint a competent person to assist you (a consultant) or do it your self, if you are confident, but remember it is a legal situation, your choice.
