Thread Name: UK Government to license Morris Dancing
Subject: RE: UK Government to license Morris Dancing
On the Governments new DCMS website under Licensing, Entertainment, Frequently asked Questions is the bold statement

The Government does not intend to require the licensing of any type of entertainment not already covered by the existing public entertainment licensing laws.

If this is so how come "premises" is extended to any place and the clause in the 1964 Licensing Act that excempted entertainment wholly or mainly outdoors (such as Morris) is brought back in?

Since DCMS is no longer speaking to me does nyone know how to raise this profile particularly with Morris and Sword Dancers etc?
