Thread Name: Cornish Session Dies
Subject: RE: Cornish Session Dies

It seems very unlikely that councils are really going to act now to prevent sessions or insist on a PEL - when this legislation will die in November 2005 and the Premises Licence (and entertainment permission at no additional cost) can be applied for from this coming Monday......

If you check with the pub and this is still the information you are receiving - perhaps you can then ask the council involved - what the position is with The Cheesewing session? For it would be interesting to find out exactly the position.

I am sure that if they told the council of their intention to apply for the new 'entertainment permission' with the new Licence - your session would be allowed to take place. From Monday your pub could even get (and pay for) a new temporary event licence to enable it. I am sure that there are no grounds for the council to prevent your next session and it would not look very good for them if they did.

If this is the case - it may be a good idea to inform your MP.
