Licensed premises invited to extend opening hours on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve

PUBS, restaurants and other licensed premises in Rugby are being invited to extend their normal Sunday opening hours on Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve.

With Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve falling on a Sunday this year, venues which want to open later than normal will need to submit temporary event notices (TENs) to Rugby Borough Council.

With the deadline for submissions coming soon, the council is reminding licensees to make sure they get their notices in.

For Christmas Eve extensions, licensees must submit their notice by December 8, or by December 15 for a Late TEN.




For New Year’s Eve extensions, licensees must submit their notice by December 13, or by December 20 for a Late TEN.

Coun Derek Poole, Leader of the Council and its spokesman for Regulation and Safety, said: “We know how important Christmas and New Year are to the hospitality industry and we want to do everything we can to support these businesses at this busy time of year.


“Licensees need to get their notices in before the deadline so that we can make sure the town centre and our other venues are busy and vibrant this Christmas season.”
