If you wish to show, demonstrate or perform a hypnotism act in public, you must have authorisation from the council issued under the provisions of the Hypnotism Act 1952.
You must comply with any conditions attached to any authorisation.
Applications must give the council the maximum possible notice for application to be properly considered. This is especially important where the hypnotist has not previously performed in the council's area.
Along with applications, applicants need:
Applicants must be aged 18 years or older.
Applications can be made for hypnotism consent for any place and applications will be accepted for performances in buildings or on the street.
When we receive your application:
Tacit consent will apply if an application is unopposed which means you can act as though your application is granted if you have not heard from the licensing authority by the end of the target completion period (40 calendar days).
You can also view a copy of the register at the council's offices during normal office hours. Please contact the Licensing Team to make an appointment.
