Consultation description

The Licensing Act 2003 brought together 9 separate outdated licensing related regimes, and created instead a single Act that controlled alcohol supply and sale, late night refreshment, and “regulated entertainment”.  In tidying up the old licensing regimes new problems were created for many wishing to host entertainment events.

The government is therefore proposing a reform of activities currently classed as “regulated entertainment” in Schedule One of the 2003 Act.  The consultation seeks views on the removal in certain circumstances of the requirement for a licence in England and Wales to host a performance of a play, an exhibition of a film, an indoor sporting event, a performance of live music, any playing of recorded music, or a performance of dance.
