What is a club premises certificate?

Whether it’s a local conservative club or a sporting social group, it’s always great to get together with likeminded individuals and indulge in your shared interests. While not in itself a licence, how can a club premises certificate make organising a social group that much easier?

A club premises certificate can bypass the application of obtaining licences for individual activities such as supplying and selling alcohol and providing regulated entertainment, like musical performances or film screenings to members or guests, and instead offers an all in one purpose licence that covers a number of licensable activities.

Requirements to get a club premises certificate

To apply for a club premises certificate, your social group must first pass certain requirements. This includes ensuring that alcohol and entertainment is only provided to members and their guests and not to members of the public, and that your club has at least 25 active members and operates in good faith.

How to apply for a club premises certificate

Club premises certificate licence applications must be made via your local council. You can find the contact details for your local council at the Official UK Government Website.
