“The Government has published a draft of the Order, which will extend the hours for the sale or supply of alcohol in premises which have the benefit of a Premises Licence or Club Premises Certificate. The Order will permit the sale or supply of alcohol until 01:00 on Friday and Saturday and also the provision of hot food and drink, provided alcohol can also be sold or supplied for consumption on the premises immediately prior to 23:00 or beyond at the moment.
The important points to note are that the hours for Regulated Entertainment are not extended, and it only applies to the sale of alcohol for consumption on the premises.
Therefore, any premises wishing to provide Regulated Entertainment into the additional hours, or who want people to take their alcohol outside with them into an area which is not already licensed, such as a beer garden or patio, would need to issue a Temporary Event Notice to provide for this.”
