Wakefield College has applied for a licence to sell alcohol.

The college wants to sell alcohol at the Registry of Deeds office, on Margaret Street. behind the college's main campus in Wakefield.

The college bought the building in 2017.

The building is currently in the process of being refurbished and will feature performance spaces for its student-led theatre productions, as well as a restaurant and cafe.

If granted a licence, the college would be allowed to sell alcohol from 11am to 11pm, seven days a week.

They've also asked for permission to put on plays and dance performances, as well as live and recorded music.

Wakefield Council will now decide whether or not to grant them licences for all those activities.

In a statement, the college said: "The refurbishment of the former Registry of Deeds building is almost complete, and our students can’t wait to start using the great facilities on offer.

"The licence application is simply the transfer of an existing license from our F Block site to the Deeds building which will house the College’s award-winning Gaskells Restaurant.

"Gaskells is open to the public to come and enjoy food and drink that is prepared by our talented hospitality and catering students.

The building will also include a multi-purpose music performance space where our students can develop their skills to prepare them for careers in the performing arts industry.”
