Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I am happy to help this evening.
You can give away alcohol for free at most events, but it must be clear that this is not included in any ticket or entrance fee, and is not a way of trying to encourage people to buy something. You need a Club Premises Certificate if you want to give alcohol away on the premises of a members’ club. If you are not sure whether you need a license, contact the your local council and Licensing Team for advice.
They will be able to give location specific advice as opposed to the general guidance we can provide.
Is there anything else I can help with this evening?
No problem. Thanks for your enquiry.
