For example, you will need an alcohol licence if you sell tickets which include a free drink or if you sell alcohol at a bar. The application form must be completed and lodged with ELC at least 42 days before the event. If the application includes the outdoor area by the hall, you must also send a layout plan showing the area to be licensed with the application.
