There is now no fee for live musical charity fund-raisers.

6) For the purposes of sub-paragraph (2)(c), the cases in which the entertainment is, or entertainment facilities are, to be regarded as provided with a view to profit include any case where that entertainment is, or those facilities are, provided with a view to raising money for the benefit of a charity.

The Government would argue (despite incorporating the fee into the compulsory 'premises' licence and increasing the overall cost to the lincesee), that there is still no fee being charged for live musical charity fund raising events.
