Quick Reference

A category of event under the Licensing Act 2003 which replaces events for which an occasional licence would have been issued under the previous legislation. In this category are events which will last for less than four days and will be attended by fewer than 500 people. Alcoholic liquor may be sold but no licence is required for these events. They may be staged by any person aged 18 or over provided that notice is given to the police and council at least ten days before the event. There are restrictions on the number of events a person can stage and the number of events that can be held at a particular venue. A person can stage five events per year unless he holds a personal licence in which case he can stage 50 such events. A venue can usually hold a maximum of twelve events per year with 24 hours between events, but can hold 15 events if each is for only one day. Only the police can object and the only ground permitted for objection is crime prevention. If the council wishes to support the police objection it must serve an objection notice on the applicant and hold a hearing which must be complete at least 24 hours before the event.
