Planning a street party?

Posted on 19th March, 2018 in News

With only two months to go before the Royal Wedding on May 19th, Sedgemoor District Council is reminding parishes and community groups that there is help and advice about planning a street party or event. http://www.streetparty.org.uk

Many people are already planning street parties with friends and neighbours. Street parties are a great way for communities to come together to celebrate special occasions or annual events such as The Big Lunch on 3 June and the Great Get Together over the weekend of 22 to 24 June.

You may need an Events Licence – please check with SDC’s Licencing team on https://www.sedgemoor.gov.uk/article/751/Temporary-Event-Notices  or you may need a road closure – see https://www.sedgemoor.gov.uk/article/1307/Temporary-Road-Closuresfor information.

The government has re-issued street party guidance to make it easier for people to organise local events. As well as our street party guidance, The Big Lunch and The Great Get Together have lots of tips and resources to help people plan their event.
