The Live Music Act came into force on 1 October last year, and this was the first phase of the government's drive to cut red tape on entertainment. See my blog for details.
New regulations are now before Parliament which will relax further the need to have a Premises Licence or Temporary Event Notice if the proposed entertainment is an indoor sporting event or a performance of a play or dance which does not exceed a specified number, or if it does, it takes place between 8 am and 11 pm.
The maximum numbers are 500 for a play, 1000 for an indoor sporting event, and 500 for a perormance of dance. As have mentioned there is no maximum if the event takes palce between 8 am and 11 pm.
Note that boxing and wrestling will still require a Premises Licence.
