North Lincolnshire Council


Who needs to apply?

A person requires written consent of the licensing authority to put on any exhibition, demonstration or performance of hypnotism (as defined in the Hypnotism Act 1952) and must comply with any attached conditions.

Downloadable forms:

An application for consent must be in writing and signed by the applicant or their agent. It should normally be made not less than 28 days in advance of the performance concerned. This period may be reduced in the case of a hypnotist who has performed at the same venue within the last three years without any problems.

The applicant must at the same time forward a copy of the application to the chief officer of police; and the council may also copy it to the local fire authority if it considers this necessary.
