Apply for a street trading licence for a single event

Charity/community street trading events

If you are trading at a charity or community event, you may qualify for a discounted street trading consent fee of £40.

What event would qualify for a discount?

✔ the event must be organised by a charity or community organisation

✔ the event aims to involve and support the local community

✔ any trading activity will be secondary to the main purpose of the event

✔ the event organiser will not be charging a pitch fee to trade at the event. Farmers' markets, car boot sales, or similar events do not come under this category, even if they are raising money for charity

If you want to hold a number of events throughout the year, you will need to apply for each event separately. Otherwise you can apply for a full street trading consent.

Apply for a charity or community event

You must apply at least 15 working days before your event is due to take place.

The following documents are needed to submit your application:
