COUNCILLORS will decide whether a licence permitting late-night entertainment should be given to two social clubs.

Portsmouth Trade Union Club & Institute Limited, which runs Fratton and Cosham Social Clubs, wants to have the option of holding live music on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from midday until 2am.

It wishes to sell late-night food at both premises from 11pm to 1.30am from Friday to Sunday, including Christmas Eve, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

Alcohol would be sold from 10am and 1.30am on those days and there would be hen and stag nights. Fratton residents have submitted a petition saying they believe the changes will cause more problems with noise. A decision will be made by the council’s licensing sub-committee at 9.30am tomorrow.
