National Licensing Week - 17th - 21st June 2019 #NLW2019

#NLW2018 took place from 18th-22nd June 2018, and was a great success with more organisations and individuals than ever taking the opportunity to promote their work and raise awareness of licensing and its impact on everyday lives - Thank you to everyone who took part!  

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.
