I'd like to open a play cafe in my local area (semi-rural Scotland) but to gauge interest, I'd like to try a couple of pop-up events in the local village hall to get some feedback on pricing/facilities/ preferred catering.
My questions are: 1. Do I need some kind of licence to sell food and non-alcoholic beverages in a village hall? I've attended events there that are charity/not for profit, but I wasn't sure on the position for a commercial event.
2. I'd need to complete a food hygiene certificate for when I open my business, but will I need this for the pop-up venture?
