In order to provide licensable activities you are going to need one of three types of permission.
1) A “Premises licence” allows a premises to be used for licensable activities. It acts as a single umbrella licence, covering this whole group of activities, which under the old system required separate licences. It is valid for an unlimited time, subject to surrender, variation, revocation, lapsed or suspension, but can be requested for a limited period. A Such licences will be held by pubs and nightclubs, restaurants, off licences, supermarkets, theatres, cinemas etc.
2) A “Club Premises Certificate” will be used for the supply of alcohol to members and guests of the club and the provision of regulated entertainment within the club
3) A “Temporary Events Notice” is to permit the sale by retail of alcohol, the provision of regulated entertainment, the sale of hot food or drink between 11pm and 5am temporarily. Each event covered by a TEN can last up to 168 hours, and no more than twelve TENs can be given in respect of any particular premises in any calendar year, subject to a maximum of 21 days per year involving no more than 499 people at any one time.
