The extension was today confirmed by Kit Malthouse to the House of Commons

Following consultation back in December 2021, the Government have today confirmed their plans to extend the licensing hours for licensed premises over the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend at the beginning of June.

Kit Malthouse confirmed today that the extension will apply to premises in England and Wales that are already licensed until 11pm for the sale of alcohol for consumption on the premises, for the provision of late-night refreshment (only where there is also the sale of alcohol for consumption on the premises), and for the provision of regulated entertainment.

The order will automatically extend the licensing hours for applicable premises from 11pm until 1am the following day, on the evening of Thursday 2nd June. Friday 3rd June and Saturday 4th June to tie in with the extended bank holiday.

The order is expected to be laid before parliament in the next few weeks.
