National Licensing Week -14th - 18th June 2021 #NLW2021

#NLW2021 is taking place from the 14th - 18th June 2021.

National Licensing Week is an opportunity to raise awareness of licensing and its role in every day lives.

Join us and take the opportunity to promote awareness of the role licensing plays in your business and give a shout out to licensing practitioners everywhere!

Its also a great opportunity to showcase your business and the excellent work you are involved in!

The work that goes on behind the scenes by licensees, operators and regulators is often invisible to the public until something goes wrong. NLW is a chance to change that and raise awareness across the country.

It's a chance to "shout out" about the work you do on a daily basis and also a chance to celebrate and promote partnership working.

The underlying message is that "licensing is everywhere", we will be using daily themes to demonstrate how licensing effects our daily lives:

Licensing affects everyone, every day.  National Licensing Week is an opportunity to raise awareness with the public - do they know that licensing matters whether they are jumping into a taxi, eating from a street trader, buying a pint or glass of wine,  getting a tattoo, piercing or massage, buying a pet, gambling or giving to charity, camping, getting rid of scrap metal to visiting a casino or a strip club, partying at a festival or going to a night club, theatre or museum.

Let’s raise awareness together - everyone should know and understand the role that licensing plays in everyday lives!

To raise awareness generally about licensing, the Institute of Licensing  established  National Licensing Week as an annual awareness week in 2016.   National Licensing

Week has grown year on year ever since with more and more participation from organisations and individuals taking the opportunity to promote their work and the role that licensing plays.
