Stage hypnotism authorisation

If you wish to perform stage hypnotism as public entertainment, you must apply for authorisation from our Licensing team.

The premises at which hypnotism will take place must hold either a:

  • premises licence or
  • club premises certificate

Apply for authorisation

You can apply for authorisation online at GOV.UK:

There is no fee for stage hypnotism authorisation.


The legislation covering this area is the Hypnotism Act 1952.

Consumer complaint

We would always advise that in the event of a complaint the first contact is made with the trader by you - preferably in the form a letter (with proof of delivery). If that has not worked, see GOV.UK: Consumer rights (external website) for advice. From outside the UK contact the UK European Consumer Centre (external website).
