Alcohol and entertainment premises licence


You need a licence for premises where licensed entertainment will be held, and for any business or other organisation that sells or supplies alcohol on a permanent basis. If alcohol is to be sold at premises, it can only be sold under the authority of a person who holds a personal licence. The premises at which activities take place must be covered by a premises licence, a club certificate or a Temporary Event Notice (TEN)

A personal licence is required for anyone who plans to authorise the sale or supply of alcohol. Find out more about personal licences and submit an application.
