Under the Public Order Act 1986, the offence of violent disorder can be committed on both public and private land. The key factor is the use or threat of unlawful violence and its impact on causing fear in a person of reasonable firmness. Therefore, the location being private does not exempt the accused from liability if the other elements of the offence are met. 

Key Point: The Public Order Act 1986 allows for the offence of violent disorder to occur on both public and private land, emphasising the nature of the violent conduct rather than the location.
