Extended Licensing Hours for Diamond Jubilee

Licensed premises will be entitled to extend their hours for the weekend of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The order applies to premises where alcohol is sold for consumption on the premises (i.e. not shops and supermarkets) and will allow those premises which are currently allowed to be open until 23.00 or later to open:


  • Friday 1st June 2012        from 23.00 to 01.00 (Saturday 2nd June 2012)
  • Saturday 2nd June 2012   from 23.00 to 01.00 (Sunday 3rd June 2012)


Premises will be able to extend their current licensable activities in-line with the above measures, but anyone wishing to carry out a licensable activity they are not currently permitted to by their premises licence, in order to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, (eg. live music, late night refreshment etc.) will still need to apply for a Temporary Event Notice (T.E.N.) and we would advise they do this before the end of March.

Please note that the order covers only the Friday and Saturday and those wishing to extend the celebrations through the weekend and into the Bank Holiday Monday, where they intend to carry out licensable activities beyond those they are permitted to on their premises licence or club premises certificate, will need to apply for a TEN for that purpose as well.

The usual conditions on the premises licence remain in place for the additional hours.
