Prince William will marry Kate Middleton on Friday, April 29 and Middlesbrough Council wants to do all it can to help local people mark this historic occasion.

The Government has produced a useful guide which is intended to help neighbours, parish councils, residents’ associations and community groups to plan events to mark the royal wedding.

The full guide is available from: Street Party Guide.

The guidance can be summarised as follows:

Organising small, private street parties is very simple and generally does not involve activities that need a licence, such as selling alcohol or providing certain types of entertainment.

Larger public events may require a temporary license in the form of a temporary event notice which can be obtained from the council’s licensing section and costs £21.

The main differences between a street party, which would not require a licence, and a larger event, which would be need a license, are.

Street Parties Larger Public Events
For residents/neighbours only Anyone can attend
Advertised only to residents Advertised widely (such as newspapers)
No sale of alcohol Alcohol to be sold

No licences normally necessary if music is incidental
and no selling of tickets is involved

Licence usually needed if playing music
is a main part of the event

No formal risk assessment needed,
unless a road closure is required
(see below)

If you would like to hold a street party and need advice on whether your event requires a licence please contact the council’s licensing section on 01642 728720.

If your event will involve one or more road closures, you will need to submit an Application Form.

Forms must be received by Tuesday, March 1 2011 to allow time for the application to be considered and, if approved, for the necessary Order to be made.

For more details, please contact Kim Richards in the Council’s Road Safety and Traffic team on (01642) 728187 as soon as possible.
