The Licensing Act 2003

This act came into force on 24th November 2005.  Its main ramifications upon users relate to the provision of alcohol.  ANY event where it is intended to provide alcohol whether by sale or not, including ‘free’, ‘gifted’ or ‘bring-your-own’ provision and even where consumption is incidental to the main purpose of the event, MUST be notified to the booking secretary preferably at the time of making the booking but in any case, at least 3 weeks before the date of the event to ensure the provisions of the 2003 Licensing Act are met.


Under the act most circumstances will be routinely dealt with by the booking secretary and our Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS).  All events at which alcohol will be sold will be subject to an additional charge, in lieu of the now superseded Occasional Permissions Magistrates licence, now known as a Temporary Events notice (TEN).  In the event, there is no DPS available hirers need to obtain a TEN from Wealden District Council and pass a copy to booking secretary.
