[llll] Licensing arrangements 2008
Advice to Hirers – sale of alcohol.
The Hall is licensed for Public Entertainment (80 Standing, 50 seated).
Potential hirers need to be clear as to the legally prescribed position re events at which alcohol is available.
The licensing Act came into force in November 2005 and the Hall Premises Licence does not cover the supply or sale of alcohol to the Public at any event in the Hall.
However, alcohol may be consumed at occasions such as Quiz Nights, where members of the public bring their own alcoholic beverage, or at a strictly Private Party, where guests receive prior invitation and attend free of charge, and where all alcohol consumed is supplied free of charge by the Host – It is NOT permissable to ask for ‘donations’ or other monetary contribution, under any circumstance, towards the cost of the alcohol.
If alcohol is to be sold or provided as part of the entrance fee, then a Temproary Event Notice (TEN) must be applied for from Carmarthenshire County Council. Please ensure that your booking has been accepted before applying! N.B. The Hall is only allowed to have 12 TENs covering 15 days in any twelve months (Jan to Dec).
Any hirer wishing to run an event where alcohol is supplied either for sale or by the hirer as an integral part of the event – (and therefore effectively purchased by the entry charge) must:
1. Contact the Hall Booking Secretary to register their wish to hold an event at which alcohol will be for sale. The Booking Secretary will confirm if enough TENs remain.
2. Then obtain a Temporary Event Notice (TEN) in advance,by application to Carmarthenshire County Council (The Licensing Authority). This currently costs £21. It is the responsibility of the Hirer to obtain this Notice.
3. Provide a copy of the duly endorsed TEN(s) for the Committee to have sight of, at least one month prior to the event taking place, to confirm the booking.
Guidance information and the TEN forms, (required in duplicate by the county council – with another copy for the Police), are available in Microsoft Word format on https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/temporary-events-notice-application
The completed form should be submitted to Carmarthenshire Councty Council:
As mentioned above, the Hall is limited under the new licensing regulations to 12 such Events per year – covering a maximum of 15 days.
The TEN application form requires the Hirer to nominate an individual as the Premises User – who will:
Øbe present throughout the Event
Øbe responsible for adherence to all the conditions listed in the notes which are attached to the TEN application form
Øensure that the endorsed copy of the TEN is displayed in the Hall during the event.
( Note: Where the intention is to supply alcohol for consumption on the premises, then the Premises User must ensure that no person leaves the premises with alcohol supplied in the Hall.)
