  • sale of alcohol by retail
  • regulated entertainment
  • the provision of hot food or hot drink between 23:00 and 05:00 on any day (late night refreshment)

Regulated entertainment is defined as:

  • a performance of a play
  • an exhibition of a film
  • an indoor sporting event
  • a boxing or wrestling entertainment
  • a performance of live music
  • any playing of recorded music
  • a performance of dance
  • facilities for making music

If a club is not a qualifying club under the 2003 Act and undertakes "licensable activities" (defined in part 3 of the 2003 Act), an application for a New Premises Licence will be required.

A Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) is not required for a Club Premises Certificate.
