Licence to use Land for a Fete or other Event


This Licence to use Land for a Fete or other Event should be used where the owner of land wishes to allow another person to use the land for an event such as a fete or party.

Clause 1 contains the definitions. The Licensor can use the “Permitted Hours” definition to limit the hours during which the Licensee may use the land. For example, the Licence Period may be a whole weekend, but the Permitted Hours might be 9am to 11pm to ensure that there is no noise during the night.

The definition of Premises makes optional reference to a plan. It is recommended that a plan is included, showing the Premises edged red, so that the extent of the Premises is clear. If the Licensor is providing any furniture or equipment, this should be listed on a schedule and attached to the Licence before it is signed.

Clause 2 contains the grant of the Licence.

Clause 3 contains the Licensee’s covenants. These cover payment of the Licence Fee, use, and the Licensor’s right of entry.

Clause 4 provides for the Licensee to have access to the Premises via the Licensor’s adjoining land, if necessary.

Clause 5 contains some standard clauses including a requirement for notices (e.g. a notice to terminate the Licence) to be served in accordance with section 196 of the Law of Property Act 1925. This means that notices should be delivered by hand or sent by recorded or special delivery post. If the notice is sent by recorded or special delivery post, service is deemed to occur at the time at which the letter would “in the ordinary course” be delivered.

Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
