And being free of alchol has nothing to do with alcohol.

It is the event that needs a licence. Put on "regulated entertainment" and the event needs a licence.

Let me quote an obvious exanmple.

The "Flash Mob Happening" to film the T-Mobile advert at Liverpool St. Station (actually a carefully choreographed event) almost certainly needed a licence.

It was a performance, it came under the heading of regulated entertainment and it was to some extent to entertain the public. The fact that no charge was made is irrelevant.

So - I am sorry but moving from a pub will not help. And Ian Bruce is right - buy the magazine.
