TEMPORARY EVENTS NOTICES FOR THE HALL
(As at September 2006)
We have a Premises Licence for the hall which covers public entertainment, so hirers do not need a temporary events licence if all that they are doing is providing entertainment. There is no limit on the number of public entertainment events that can be held in the hall under our licence.
Our Premises Licence is limited to events between midday and midnight on Monday to Saturday, and to a maximum of 200 people. So anyone wanting to run a public entertainment on Sunday or after midnight would need to apply for a temporary events notice. The 200 people limit applies in all cases and cannot be increased.
Selling alcohol in the Hall
Our Premises Licence does not cover the sale of alcohol, so a hirer wanting to do this at an event in the Hall would have to apply for a Temporary Events Notice.
Uttlesford District Council have told us that
Hirers do not need a Notice if people bring their own alcohol to the event.
Hirers do need a Notice if the entry fee entitles the person to a "free" drink of alcohol.
Hirers do need a Notice if selling alcohol even at an entirely private function.
Under “services” select licences then select temporary event licences. email or phone them for a form
Limit on number of Notices
There is a limit on the number of Temporary Events Notices that can be given for the Hall. Whoever applies for them, and whatever they are for, the limit is 12 in any calendar year.
Getting a Temporary Events Notice
Hirers need to get form from Uttlesford District Council Licensing Department, 01799 510578. A notice costs £21(as at Sept 2006) and the completed form needs to be returned to the Council and the Police at least 10 days before the event.
