At a small gathering in a local bistro, its probably a good idea to inform your guests of the event, otherwise it could be a little quiet, but there aren't usually any statutory bodies that you are required to talk to.
Larger events depend on what you are going to be doing, alcohol usually requires a temporary event notice if you are charging for it, if it is being given away then it doesn't fall under the retail sale of alcohol regulations so you don't need to apply for one, if you need one remember to do it in good time, applications that are late will be refused.

So be careful, if you are having a live band or a late night event you could come under the terms of this. Normally you have to apply for a license 21 days before the event, but this has now been relaxed and you are allowed to apply for 10 Late TENS a year, these need putting in 5 days before.
A major event will also require first aid cover, and its probably a good idea to inform both the police and fire service.
