All performances which involve hypnotism must be licensed and the premises in which the performance is to be held must also be licensed.
There are requirements under the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982 (in England and Wales) and the Hypnotism Act 1952. Also, the premises in which the performance is to be held must also be licensed for Regulated Entertainment under the Licensing Act 2003.
If you wish to show, demonstrate or perform a hypnotism act in public, you must have authorisation from the local authority in England and Wales.
