Public Entertainment License

Postby ashterix » 04 Mar 2012, 11:46

As of April 1st councils in scotland will be requiring all performances (or at least evnues), including free ones, to obtain a performacne license ranging from £120 to £7500 depending on venue and audience size. How will this affect the Free Fringe if at all? But, even if it doesn't effcet the Free Fringe it is still a very worrying occurence. Will venues already have an entertianment license? i assum many will as they have live music but this is still a concern.

" You would not normally require a licence for:

for an athletic or sports ground being used for sports or athletic
purposes

entertainment that is being provided where a Premises Licence for the sale of alcohol under the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 is in effect and the Operating Plan includes the said entertainment.

if you currently hold a Theatre or Cinema licence "
