Street parties and kit to loan

Easton and Lawrence Hill are the leading Street Party Communities in the country – we are a neighbourly lot!

Easton Community Centre loans out ‘road closed’ signs and bunting for street holding parties. We ask for a £10 donation from each event to help pay to replace kit over time, plus a deposit of £20.

You need the road signs to close your road – you must apply to Bristol City Council at least 8 weeks in advance – apply here. They will ask the applicant to sign an indemnity form on behalf of the street – this is normal.

The Street Party Site explains why don’t need insurance or a risk assessment and has everything you want to know about organising a street party and much more. Larger publicised community events need more arrangements.

To book your street party kit contact Easton Community Centre call 01179 541 409 or email

Bristol is the Street Party Capital of the UK – see other community centres that lend out signs and bunting.

Residents in Easton and the surrounding area hold 10 – 15 of these private neighbours’ events each year and over 40 streets have held one at some time in the last 10 years.
