Sex shop and cinema licence

To run a sex shop, for example any premises selling sex toys, books or videos - you may need a licence from the local authority. To run a venue where explicit films are shown to members of the public, you also need a licence from the local authority.

However, you may apply to the local authority requesting them to waive the requirement of a licence.
