A Club Premises Certificate is required for clubs that members join for a particular social, sporting or political purpose and then combine to purchase alcohol in bulk for members. The club has restricted access to the public (non-members) and the alcohol is supplied to members for no profit. You are able to apply online for a Club Premises Certificate.
Clubs meeting the following criteria are known as 'qualifying clubs' and when wishing to conduct the activities above a Club Premises Certificate is required:
Under the rules of the club, persons may not be admitted to membership, or be admitted, as candidates for membership, to any of the privileges of membership without an interval of at least two days between their nomination for membership and their admission
If you wish to supply alcohol to non-members (not including guests of members) for a one off occasion such as a birthday party, you should apply for a Premises Licence or a Temporary Event Notice (TEN).
