If you would like to organise a street party, please complete the ‘Application for a Street Party’ in the ‘Downloads’ section.

Government guidance on street parties does not require a formal risk assessment or public liability insurance and Wolverhampton’s Public Events Safety Advisory Group will work with any residents wanting to organise a street party, to help them deliver a safe and successful event. There is no charge for their advice.

If you would like to serve a Temporary Event Notice, allowing the sale or supply of alcohol during the street party and provision of hot food or drink between 11 pm and 5 am, please also complete the ‘Temporary Event Notice’ in the ‘Downloads’ section.

VE Day 75 Anniversary

The Council is covering the cost of fees for residents wanting to host street parties to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of VE Day on Friday 8 May 2020, a bank holiday. No fees will be charged for residents wishing to:

  • Serve a Temporary Event Notice (TEN) to the Council, allowing the sale or supply of alcohol during the event and provision of hot food or drink between 11 pm and 5 am.
  • Apply for a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO), allowing the resident’s road to be closed to motor vehicles.

This will be applicable for any street party on Friday 8 May to Sunday 10 May 2020. Individuals serving on behalf of businesses or for events on private land will still be required to pay the £21 fee. The final date to serve a TEN will be 23 April 2020.
