Planning a street party is a super fun experience, but there are a few rules and regulations to be aware of!

Government street party rules include:

•    Street parties are for residents and neighbours only
•    Publicity is only for residents
•    Your street party should take place in a quiet residential road, block of flats or local green space
•    It should be self-organised
•    No formal risk assessment is needed, just consider the safety needs of those attending
•    Often, licences are not necessary unless the sale of alcohol is involved. If you plan to sell alcohol you will need to check whether you need a Temporary Events Notice
•    You don't normally need insurance
•    The Licensing Act 2003 does not require a music licence for a street party
