If you want to do any of the following licensable activities you will need a licence:
- Sell alcohol by retail
- Supply hot food or hot drink after 23:00 or before 05:00 on any day. This includes takeaways, cafés, mobile hot food vans and any other venue providing hot food or hot drink
- Provide regulated entertainment such as performance of a play, exhibition of a film, indoor sporting events, boxing and wrestling, live or recorded music (or similar) and performance of dance (or similar)
You still need a licence even if the activities are for charity.
Large scale events which are likely to attract over 500 people will also require a Premises Licence.
