Casino/Gambling + Licensing requirements

licensing

(Leon Wilding) #1

Good evening all.

As an event organiser, I am always looking for new, fresh and exciting event concepts. Now I am new to the world of events and I have hit the ground following a successful club night, raising money for ‘Rethink Mental Illness’.

As that event was held in a licensed venue, most aspects were already taken care of. Now I am thinking of future events. One aspect is in regards to a ‘Casino’ gambling type event. Not solely a gambling event but having casino tables there along with music, a bar etc.

In regards to licensing, what licenses will I need to obtain for such an event? The event will be held in a marquee.

Any info would be fantastic! Thanks everyone

Hi Leon, you’ll need a Temporary Event Notice and a Gambling Premises Licence from the local authority.
