All premises involved in the sale of alcohol or the provision of late night refreshments and regulated entertainment need a premises licence.
The Licensing Act 2003 brings together the sale of alcohol, the provision of regulated entertainment and late night refreshment into one licence. The Act intends to encourage tourism, reduce alcohol misuse, improve the self-sufficiency of local communities and reduce the burden of unnecessary regulations on businesses.
