Special Licence

Boxing fans will know there is a big fight coming up on Sunday 1 April 2018 – Joseph Parker vs Anthony Joshua.

Now this is also Easter Sunday and under the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012, licensed establishments cannot serve liquor to the public on Easter Sunday (amongst others). Restaurants are able to serve alcohol with meals, however given the boxing event is set to go over several hours, this exception will not apply in this instance.

This is a heads up to licensees that if they want to open for the boxing, they will require a Special Licence. Special Licences must be applied for at least 20 working days before the event, so if this applies to you, get in touch with us now.
