Consultation description

This consultation offered a chance to comment on the proposed extension of opening hours in licensed premises (such as pubs, clubs and bars) over the Royal Wedding long weekend in April.

Many pubs and other licensed premises wished to open later over that weekend to take advantage of the celebrations and the long weekend.

Usually, licence holders have to apply for a Temporary Event Notice (TEN) to extend their opening hours for a limited period. However, these are subject to annual limits and may be refused if the police object on the grounds of crime and disorder.

The Royal Wedding was a time of national celebration and the government wanted everyone to be able to participate. They therefore considered temporarily extending the opening hours of licensed premises in England and Wales to 1am on Friday 29 April and Saturday 30 April.

This consultation asked for views on this temporary extension.
