Premises which held a 'public entertainment licence' were subject to the 'Standard Conditions for Places of Public Entertainment'.

When these licences were converted to a 'premises licence' under the Licensing Act 2003, the 'Standard Conditions for Places of Public Entertainment' carried forward to the new licence unless a variation was granted to remove them.

If you would like a copy of these conditions, please contact us.

City Pubwatch Scheme

Derby City Pubwatch is a meeting where licence holders and responsible authorities can meet to discuss current topics. Attending Pubwatch is generally voluntary, unless it is a condition on the premises licence.

Derby City Pubwatch online is an initiative that allows licensed premises staff instant access to information of individuals that are banned by Derby City Pubwatch group from entering licensed premises across the area with a key aim of achieving a safe and secure social environment for licensed premises customers and staff.

The coordinator for Derby City Pubwatch is Jason Dickens. Email
