Brighton Oktoberfest granted drinks licence

An Oktoberfest event on The Level in Brighton has received a licence to sell alcohol.

Conditions agreed with Sussex Police include providing a dedicated space for vulnerable people during the event on Friday 12 October and Saturday 13 October.

Further conditions include ensuring a noise monitoring contact number is included in a letter to residents in the area and for noise management arrangements to be in place.

The licence was granted by a Brighton and Hove City Council licensing panel.

Oktoberfest is being organised by an events company called Whiskey Bravo Productions.

Whiskey Bravo managing director Ian Baird said: “In all honesty there are no restrictions on here we hadn’t intended on putting upon ourselves anyway.

“We’re here to work with, not against, the community and be part of the diverse mix offered to the residents of the city.”

At the licensing panel hearing last month St Peter’s and North Laine Green councillor Pete West spoke on behalf of residents at the panel meeting and described the complaints from last year’s event as “harrowing”.
