Thread Name: A little more news on Licensing
Subject: RE: A little more news on Licensing
Roger, am I right in thinking that playing recorded music would also be an illegal unlicensed activity if the entainments provision was not applied for ? If that is so, then most licensees would need to apply.

My main concern, is that Linda and I do quite a few pub gigs (St Pat's/George's nights, New Year etc) in places which don't tend to have regular entertainment. It's obviously in our interests to make sure that these venues are covered for these events.

There are also several venues where the landlord wants (and in many cases has had events which were discovered by the "PEL Police") sessions etc, but is currently deterred by the cost of the license. There are also many other places (including our regular monthly session) where the landlord has so far got away without a PEL, where it would be a good idea if the situation was legalised.
