Premises in bands D or E used mainly for consuming alcohol on the premises, are subject to fee multipliers. These have fees of £640.00 for band D and £1,050 for band E.

High-capacity premises

Premises licences for large capacity events have an extra annual fee, based upon the number of people allowed to attend the event at any time. The extra annual fee must be added to the relevant annual fee in the table above.

Licensed capacity Extra annual premises licence fee
5,000 to 9,999 £500
10,000 to 14,999 £1,000
15,000 to 19,999 £2,000
20,000 to 29,999 £4,000
30,000 to 39,999 £8,000

If your capacity is higher than this, please contact the Licensing Team.

Please note that the above are not application fees. Information for fees can be found on Apply for a premises licence.


Some community premises may not have to have a licence or pay annual fees as they are only licensed for entertainment and not alcohol or late night refreshment. These include church halls, chapel halls, village halls, community centres, schools and colleges. To discuss whether this should apply to your premises contact the Licensing Team.
