Royal Wedding Licensing Hours

There will be a relaxation of licensing hours on 18th and 19th May 2018 in recognition of the Royal Wedding.

The Home Secretary has permitted an extension of licensing hours of premises holding a licence for the sale of alcohol for sale on the premises only. The extension will run from :-

  • 11pm Friday 18th May until 1am Saturday 19th May; and

  • 11pm Saturday 19th May until 1am on Sunday 20th May 2018.

The relaxation also applies to late night refreshment but only where the premises is already licensed for the sale of alcohol and late night refreshments, so for example if your premises is already permitted to serve hot food and drink up to midnight then this is automatically extended to 1am on the above 2 days.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact the Licensing Team at Kitsons.
