Club premises licence

Voluntary and social clubs give rise to different issues for Licensing Law than commercially run premises selling direct to the public. These clubs carry on activities from premises to which public access is restricted and alcohol is supplied other than for profit. A Club Premises Certificate allows qualifying clubs to provide qualifying club activities for the life of the club.

Qualifying club

To be classified as a qualifying club a number of general conditions must be met:

  • instant membership is not permitted and members must wait at least 2 days between their application and their admission to the club
  • Under the rules of club persons becoming members without prior nomination or application, they may not be admitted to the privileges of membership without an interval of at least 2 days between their becoming members and and their admission
  • The club must be established and conducted in good faith as a club
  • The club has at least 25 members
  • Alcohol is not supplied, or intended to be supplied to members on the premises otherwise than by or on behalf of the club
