I was back in London on Friday to meet Stuart Roberts and Mabel Wanogho from the Entertainment Licensing team at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport to talk about possible changes to the licensing of live entertainment. The Government hopes to reduce licensing requirements under the Licensing Act 2003 for various forms of live entertainment. DCMS is considering a range of options and having informal early discussions with those who may be affected. Stuart explained that they are examining whether the licensing system is sufficiently targeted and proportionate, considering its impact on low risk and small scale events. I provided some initial feedback from the point of view of voluntary arts groups and offered to convene a meeting of voluntary arts umbrella bodies to discuss any proposed changes in more detail.
