Hypnotism Licence

If you wish to show, demonstrate or perform a hypnotism act in public, you must have authorisation from us.

You must comply with any conditions attached to an authorisation.

Apply for a licence

You can apply for a licence by contacting the licensing department.  There is no fee for this licence.
Information on the Hypnotism Act 1952 can be found on the Office of Public Sector Information website.

How long will it take to receive the licence?

You can expect to hear from us normally within 60 days.


If there are any complaints or appeals on the licence you should contact us for advice.
We would always advise that in the event of a complaint you contact the trader first, preferably in the form a letter (with proof of delivery). If this method does not work, if you are located in the UK, Consumer Direct will give you advice. From outside the UK contact the UK European Consumer Centre.
