Licensing of Hypnotism Events

You are here

Any exhibition, demonstration or performance of hypnotism (as defined in the Hypnotism Act 1952) requires a permit from the Council as licensing authority. There is no charge for this.


An application must be submitted no less than 28 days before the date on which the 'display' is scheduled to take place.

The premises at which hypnotism will take place must hold a Premises Licence or a Club Premises Certificate issued under the Licensing Act 2003.
