April 29th might be a good day for a street party…

by awitherick on 1 March, 2011

Little in life is free, but a Street Party might be as the County Council won’t be charging for those held for the Royal Wedding on the 29th April.

A street party is categorised as an event that is:

  • a small private event for residents of one or two streets
  • publicised only to local residents
  • does not normally require licences if music is incidental and no selling is involved
  • organised by residents rather than professional organisers

If you would like to hold a street party or fete on the royal wedding day, download and fill in the simple application form at to let the county council know your plans.

All applications need to be received by April 4 2011.

If you want to celebrate on any other day, you will need to contact for permission.  Likewise, if you would like to organise a larger event, where alcohol is being sold for instance, please contact St Albans City & District Council.

More information on street parties, including insurance, can be found on the Streets Alive website: The Big Lunch website: also contains useful information for planning a street party.
