Detail of outcome
This is the Government’s response to the consultation on whether unnecessary licensing regulation could be removed from small scale film exhibition events in community premises.
The intention being to bolster community entertainment activity and participation by freeing up organisers to put on films without having to fill in licensing paperwork and go through a costly process.
The Impact Assessment has also been updated.
In the Entertainment Deregulation consultation response document publishing in January 2013, we said we would consult further on deregulation for community-based film exhibitions.
This consultation meets our commitment and looks at removal in certain circumstances of the requirement for a licence in England and Wales for film screenings in community venues.
Revised regulation came into force on 06 April 2015.
