All pubs will be able to open until 1am over two evenings during the upcoming royal wedding, according to reports. Prince William and Kate Middleton marry on 29 April and the late hours exemption will apply until 1am on 30 April and 1 May. According to the Sunday Mirror, the plan, set to announced within days, will mean pubs can open later without seeking permission from their local authority. The move is being spearheaded by Communities Secretary Eric Pickles to boost tourism during the wedding. The royal wedding is being seen as a big opportunity for pubs to boost trade, aided by an extended public holiday. Friday 29 April has been declared a bank holiday to mark the wedding, and Monday 2 May is already a bank holiday.
