A club premises certificate authorises a members' club to carry out licensable activities which are:

  • sale or supply of alcohol to members or guests
  • provision of regulated entertainment

Guidance

How to apply

If you carry out a licensable club activity without a club premises certificate (or premises licence) you will be breaking the law.

If you do not have a club premise certificate which relates to one of the licensable activities, you will need to make application at least two calendar months from the time you make your application to the time you wish to start trading

For a new Licence or where you are requesting variation, you must advertise by displaying a notice for a period of no less than 28 consecutive days starting on the day after the day on which the application was given to the relevant licensing authority
