Alcohol & entertainment


Businesses, organisations and individuals who want to sell or supply alcohol in Hart must have a licence or other authorisation from the Council.

The law and policy governing is overseen by the Home Office. Please visit the central government website to find out more about the process or apply for an alcohol licence. From there you can apply online, as we accept electronic applications, or download the forms and post them to us. 

We are responsible for enforcing many of these licences, along with several other services such as the police and trading standards and failure to follow the law could result in prosecution.


If you are carrying out, or holding an event you may need a licence. The type of licence will depend on if it is a temporary event or, if you are looking for a longer term permission, you may need to apply for a premises licence
