Weasel B - where have you been?

The two in a bar rule applies to music and dance licensing in pubs, except it's all about to change VERY soon.

1. You can't play music or dance in a pub unless it has a licence for public music and dance
2. Exemption from licence requirement if not more than two performers are involved.

Most pubs and local authorites have quite sensibly ignored this if it was a folk session that was clearly harmless fun. But recently some LA's have got very literal in their enforcement of these rules and pubs have closed sessions in fear of losing their (alcohol) licence.

For the rest of the story, see endless tedious PEL threads on MudCat.
