Licensing and Registration of Clubs (Amendment) Act (Northern Ireland) 2021

Section 40: Restrictions relating to advertisements

This section amends Article 38 of the Clubs Order (Restrictions on advertisements relating to functions in clubs) by removing current advertising restrictions (which specifies that unless a function involves a sport, game or physical recreation, it may only be advertised within club premises).

It permits a club to advertise any function outside of club premises where the advertisement clearly states that only members of the club and their guests may attend the function.

However, advertisements relating to functions where the proceeds are devoted to charitable or benevolent purposes will not be subject to such restrictions.
