§ Dr. Howells
The Licensing Bill provides that premises means any place. The Bill therefore applies in relation to outdoor places and events to the same extent as it does to indoor ones, save in the case of sporting events. Under the Bill, a premises licence would therefore be required in respect of a village green or other public space which is to be used for licensable activities on more than five occasions in the same year in the same way as it would for any other premises. Part 5 of the Bill provides for permitted temporary activities which may take place on a premises on up to five occasions in a year.
