Alcohol and entertainment licences
The Licensing Act 2003 covers the sale and supply of alcohol, certain types of entertainment and late night refreshments.
If you are running a business premises or a members club that serves alcohol or provides entertainment you will need to apply for a licence. You will also need to apply for a licence to serve late night refreshments.
All applications for alcohol or entertainment licenses have to meet the four licensing objectives. These are there to help make sure the licence meets the public interest. The four objectives are
- the prevention of crime and disorder;
- public safety;
- the prevention of public nuisance;
- the protection of children from harm.
Volunteer and social clubs carry on activities from premises to which public access is restricted and alcohol is supplied other than for profit. They should hold a club premises certificate.
New applications for premises licences and variations of current licences under the Licensing Act 2003 are listed below. These adverts will remain here for the 28 day period in which representations can be made.
