COVID-19 information for licensed premises - Preparing to re-open your licensed premises once COVID-19 restrictions are relaxed

You will need a licence in order to run a variety of businesses or organise some fund raising events. It is always best to check if you need a licence. Failure to hold a proper licence for activities that require one is a criminal offence. Find out what licence you need by visiting, Gov.UK – licence finder

You can get licences from the local licensing authority, this is usually the local council.
