  • does anyone know the rules??

    I have had an enquiry from a duo who would like to play at my craft fair (18th July near Maidstone Kent). I have never considered having live music at an event but am quite tempted - does anyone know the rules? They will be doing their own material (I have listened to it and its good) and bringing their own equipment.

      I feel sure the establishment where your Fair is held must have a licence for live music even if they wander among the punters like minstrels. It sounds like a nice idea though.

        Yep, i'm afraid you'll need an entertainments licence for live music, although I think they can be fairly easy to get, you'll just need to apply via your local council.

        It does sound like a good idea, and I'm sure it would bring the visitors in too.

          As far as I am aware if they play their own music and sing their own songs they should be fine in respect of Performing Rights. If they play other peoples stuff the venue will need to pay the Performing Rights Society for using it. We have to have a PRS license to play the radio in the salon. Selina

            Hi,

            You will definetely have to contact your local council licensing department.

            Here is the legislation - in case you are interested......

              thanks for the advice - I shall be making further enquiries - but will try and go ahead with the music - I think it will be something different.
