- All of our bars, except bar rentals, operate under The Licencing Act 2003.
- Licenced Premises
If the venue is a Licenced Premise, we must have permission from their Premises Supervisor for our bar to operate there. You must get this permission (verbally is fine) and confirm that the times you want the bar to operate are within the times permitted by their Licence. You will be required to sign our Terms and Conditions to confirm that this permission has been given.
- Unlicenced Premises
If the venue is not a Licenced Premise and the event is for less than 499 people a Temporary Event Notice ( TEN) will need to be obtained. We are happy to organise this for you, each council charges £21.00 for this.
If you event is for more than 499 people, we can still provide your bar, please contact us to discuss Licencing.
If you are not sure whether your venue is Licenced or not, and wish to book our service, we will be happy to make those enquiries for you. Licencing can be daunting if you haven’t dealt with it before and we don’t claim to be experts, but it is an integral part of our business and we are happy to deal with it as part of our service.
If you are wishing to rent our bar equipment and not resell any alcohol, you do not need to obtain a Licence. If you do intend to sell any alcohol you need to get permission from the Premises Supervisor or obtain a TEN as above. In these circumstances the responsibility for obtaining this permission or TEN is yours, but we will be happy to give advice if required.
All our bars are covered by full Employers, Public and Products liability insurance. All of our equipment has full current PAT testing certificates. Risk Assessments and Method Statements for large outdoor events available on request.
- Terms and Conditions.
If you decide to book our bar service you will be required to sign a set of Terms and Conditions which will outline the service we have agreed to provide for you bar. This also states the information you have given and forms the basis of the contact of service we have both agreed to.
