A thoroughly British way to celebrate, and a great way to get to know your neighbours, is to organise a street party.
Central Bedfordshire Council hope this street party information will help groups of friends, neighbours, parish councils, resident associations or any other community group to plan their street party so that it goes with a swing!
Street parties are organised by groups of residents for their neighbours and are usually quite straightforward to organise. They generally don't include activities that need a licence, such as selling alcohol, trading or providing entertainment, but there's plenty of street party information on when licences may be required.
You may want to close part, or all, of your street for your party and for that you will need to get permission and you may also require some insurance to cover your event, this may also cover seeking permission from householders who are not involved in the party.
Central Bedfordshire Council wishes to support as many events as possible and make the process as simple as it can, however as the Highways Authority we do request as much notice of your event as you can possibly provide.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any highways requests.
