Queen's Jubilee Extension to Licensing Hours on 2, 3 and 4 June has been approved

The Licensing Act 2003 (Platinum Jubilee Licensing Hours) Order 2022 has today come into force across England and Wales, allowing the country to celebrate the Queen's upcoming Platinum Jubilee.

This Order, which was initially announced back in March 2022, will provide an extension to the licensing hours for relevant premises on the evening of Thursday 2 June, Friday 3 June and Saturday 4 June 2022.

The extension will apply to premises that are already licensed with a terminal hour between 23:00 and 01:00, either through a premises licence or a club premises certificate, for:

  • The sale of alcohol.
  • The provision of late-night refreshment (only where there is also the sale of alcohol for consumption on the premises).
  • The provision of regulated entertainment.

All premises that qualify by virtue of the above will be provided an automatic extension until 01:00 the following day for the sale of alcohol on the premises, late night refreshment and regulated entertainment.

Any premises licensed beyond 01:00 do not benefit from this Order.

It is important to note that this extension only applies to the sale of alcohol on the premises, and therefore any premise licensed for off-sales only will not benefit. If a premise is licensed for both on- and off-sales, the extension only applies for the on-sales permission and all off-sales, including takeaway and deliveries of alcohol, must cease at the normal time.

Any conditions currently on the premises licence will remain in force and should be adhered to at all times during the extended period.
