Providing Free Alcohol & BYO
If you are providing alcohol at your function free of any charge then it is not a licensable activity. However this means you cannot charge for the alcohol in any way, e.g. if you include the provision of alcohol in the price of a ticket then this is a sale.
If people bring their own alcohol (BYO) to your function that is not a licensable activity, provided of course, that they do not sell the alcohol.
If you provide alcohol free or people bring their own you will still have to comply with our policy on the supply of alcohol free of charge.
If you are selling alcohol at your function it is a licensable activity and you will need to comply with our Premises Licence and our policy on the sale of alcohol.
