The sale of alcohol, regulated entertainment and late-night refreshments are classed as licensable activities. This means that if you want to provide these services, you will first need to obtain a premises license.
Licensable activities will also include the following: indoor sporting events; film exhibition; boxing or wrestling entertainment; live music; playing of recorded music; performance of a play or entertainment that is of a similar description to live music; and the playing of recorded music and dancing.
Premises licences can be granted for physical buildings or mobile vehicles, such as mobile bars, burger vans or beer tents.
The types of businesses and organisations that need alcohol licences might include pubs and bars, cinemas, theatres, nightclubs, late opening cafés, takeaways or even village and community halls and supermarkets.
Applicants must ensure that they have the correct planning permission in place for their proposed use of the premises for licensable activities.
