Many public events such as concerts or discos have to have a Public Entertainment Licence. The purpose of this licence is to avoid disturbance and to ensure the safety of people attending the event. The licence can carry conditions which can set the days and times when events can happen (and when they must finish), and could specify maximum noise levels to avoid disturbing neighbours.
