Alcohol

The consumption of alcohol is permitted in this facility.

A Special Licence may be required if alcohol is part of your event, e.g. if alcohol is being sold, or if your event is ticketed and alcohol will be consumed at the event.

In general BYO is permitted at private functions such as Weddings or Birthdays. A Special Licence generally is not required for these types of events.

For most other events BYO may not be a permitted activity (i.e. is unlawful and prohibited)

Find out more about whether you require a special licence by checking the Alcohol Licencing information and checking with the Alcohol Licencing Team directly. Please note that a Special Licence does not authorise BYO.

As the venue hirer and/or event host where alcohol is present at the event, regardless of whether your event requires a special licence or not you still have the responsibility to ensure that you are providing a safe drinking environment at your event. Please read Host Responsibility Guidelines and Tips.

You risk having your venue booking cancelled if you do not meet alcohol licencing requirements. Please note that applications for special licences must be made with the Alcohol Licencing Team at least 20 working days before the date of your event and should where possible be made before you advertise your event.
