Don't allow the user to edit content without having write permission (or at least show a error message)

Steps to reproduce

Steps to reproduce:
1. Add an Event
2. Ensure that user XYZ has read permission but not write permission for that event
3. Log in as user XYZ
4. Modify the metadata of the event

Actual Results:
The metadata is not updated as the user does not have the write permission but there is no error message indicating this.

Expected Results:
There should be an error message indicating that the user has no permission to update the event

Comment: This might apply to editing other objects, too.

Workaround (if any):

Agree, changed the title of the issue, although the error message (additionally) would probably still be required because permission changes don't are instantly made.

Wouldn't it make more sense to just not show the relevant editing button in this case, rather than allowing them to think they can edit at all? If I don't have permissions to do something, I would not be expect to be given the option to do it, then told no - that's bad UX in my opinion.
