British Summer Time ends at 2am Sunday 28 October 2018

26 Sep
2018

A reminder that British Summer Time (or as it may be more properly called Daylight Saving Time) ends at 2am Sunday 28 October 2018. This means that at 2am on that Sunday, the time becomes 1am and premises entitled to trade to 2am or later can enjoy an extra hour of trade (unless there is something specific on your licence preventing this).

Remember however that on 31 March 2019, when BST/DST next begins, the reverse is true and unless you have a specific provision on your licence to cover the clocks going forward, you may wish to consider a Temporary Event Notice to ensure that you do not lose an hours trade when at 1am on that day, the time becomes 2am.

And also an Early Bird reminder - Christmas is now less than three months away. Do not forget those possible festive occasions for which a Temporary Event Notice may also be required.

Law correct at the date of publication.
