Street parties and fetes are a traditional part of community life. Everyone on your street can join in and it's a great way to get to know your neighbours.
Organising a street party is a big responsibility and there are lots of things you need to do.
Our guide to organising a street party (.docx, 61.4kB) includes lots of useful information, including a letter that you can give to your neighbours, an explanation of indemnities and any insurance you may need. Organisers will need to canvass their neighbours to get their approval to close the road for the event.
Remember, apply as early as possible for your event to make sure you get it approved in time.
