Sex Shop, Cinema and Adult Entertainment Licensing

Apply and pay

You can apply and pay for a licence online. You’ll need:

  • an email address
  • a debit or credit card

What happens next

After you’ve applied for a licence, we’ll publish an advertisement in a local newspaper telling people that an application has been made within 7 days.

You’ll also need to display a notice on your premises stating that you’ve applied for a licence for 21 days after making your application.

If your application isn’t successful, we’ll write to you.
