LTN-11 Celebrations and Similar Events

LTN-11 Celebrations and Similar Events- March 2017

LTN-11 has been updated to include references to LTN 88 on event licensing and section 138B of the 1972 Act in respect of events and celebrations with a religious flavour.

Parish, town and community councils often wish to celebrate some national event (e.g. Royal Jubilee) or a local event (e.g. anniversary of the council). The celebration may be marked by a single event (such as a street party) or by a permanent object (such plaque or sign) or a combination. This advice is of general application in respect of the powers of local councils to organise celebratory events or objects and to incur expenditure for that purpose. This Legal Topic Note sets out the relevant statutory and other legal provisions.
