If you wish to sell alcohol from premises that are not licensed for the sale of alcohol then you will need an occasional licence.
We make getting your occasional licence a simple, stress-free process ✅
An occasional licence is required in terms of the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 for the temporary sale of alcohol at a venue which is not covered by a premises licence, this could including anything from local halls, community centre or any other type of one-off events in an unlicensed premises.
The definition of an occasional event can vary from a wedding reception to a large-scale music concert.
An occasional licence would be appropriate where for example the holder of a premises licence wishes to host an event where the sale of alcohol would be in operation, this could be a community-based fundraising event or a birthday party in a town hall.
These types of events would be held outside the boundaries of the licensed premises and therefore an occasional licence would be required.
Another example would be one-off events where the intention is to sell alcohol on a temporary basis for a specified time-period at a venue that is otherwise unlicensed. Such one-off events can range from a music festival lasting over a number of days to a local community event hosted by voluntary organisations.
An occasional licence can only be applied for if any of the following conditions are true about the applicant:
✅ the applicant is from a voluntary organisation.
✅ the applicant holds a premises licence to sell alcohol.
✅ the applicant holds a personal licence to sell alcohol.
If you do not hold a personal licence and wish to sell alcohol you must first obtain a Scottish Certificate for Personal Licence Holders (SCPLH) qualification. You can achieve this by enrolling on a Scottish Personal Licence Training Course.
Applicants may also complete an Online Personal Licence Training Course.
Occasional 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.
