Club premises certificates

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.

These clubs (such as the Royal British Legion, working men's or cricket or rugby clubs) are generally organisations where members join together for a particular social, sporting or political purpose. The clubs members combine to purchase alcohol in bulk for members.

Club premises are able to sell alcohol to members and sell it to guests without the need of a personal licence holder or designated premises supervisor.
