29 April 2016 – Licensing hours confirmed for Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations.

It has been confirmed that pub Licensing hours across England and Wales will be extended to mark Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th birthday.

Pubs which are Licensed to trade until 23:00, will be allowed to open until 01:00 on Saturday 11 June and until 01:00 on Sunday 12 June.

On-Licensed premises will be able to extend whatever Licensable activities they are permitted until 23:00 until the later hours. The extension of hours will not, however, apply to Off sales or late night takeaways.

Past national celebrations where the Government has extended Licensing hours have included the Royal Wedding, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and also the 2014 World Cup. On those occasions, the celebrations resulted in a massive boost to the pub sector and it is hoped that the same will be true of the Queen’s birthday.

For further information, please contact Andrew Cochrane.

8 February 2016 – Queen’s 90th Birthday

On the 12 June 2016, the Queen will celebrate her 90th birthday.

The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government has issued guidance on organising a street party noting that thousands of street parties took place for the Queen’s diamond jubilee in 2012.

The guidance does mention that if there is a plan to sell alcohol at a party a temporary event notice will be required and you should note this will only cover events of less than 500 people.  The guidance also mentions that a Licence would be necessary if there is to be amplified music.

The guidance is particularly keen to stress that the number one tip for holding a street party is to plan early.  To access the guidance please follow the link to https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/your-guide-to-organising-a-street-party
