17 – 21 June 2019 - National Licensing Week 2019 5th April 2019

2019 marks the 4th National Licensing Week (NLW).  It is the only initiative aimed at raising awareness about the role of licensing across the UK.

NLW is a key opportunity for everyone involved in licensing – whether in a regulatory, or operational role to promote awareness of their role, the initiatives they (or their organisation / business) are involved in and all the effort behind the scenes involved in all licensable activities.

There are daily themes throughout the week: Positive Partnerships, Tourism & Leisure, Home & Family, Night time and Business & Licensing.   These daily themes illustrate that licensing really is everywhere, often invisible to the public but present in everyone’s lives, every day.   

Taking a taxi to work, meeting friends for a drink, betting on the tracks or chancing your luck in the casino.  Even buying a raffle ticket at the local bingo, choosing a new puppy for your family, going camping or indulging in body art and piercings.  Licensing is a common feature in all these activities, in place for the purpose of public safety and safeguarding.

National Licensing Week presents a real opportunity to celebrate the diversity of licensing and all the participants and an increasing number of businesses and organisations are using the week to showcase what they do.

If you are involved in licensing, help us to raise awareness about what you do.  Consider swapping places with someone in a different role and seeing things from another angle.  Celebrate your partnership whether it’s a local pubwatch, Business Improvement District, Best Bar None scheme or something else entirely.

‘National Licensing Week is an opportunity for everyone involved in licensing to showcase what they do.   Licensing is often invisible – until things go wrong.  Lets change that together by using this week to raise awareness of all the excellent partnership work and initiatives across the country’.  

Daniel Davies, CEO CPL Training Group, CEO Rockpoint Leisure, Chairman of the Institute of Licensing
