On Monday the Government announced plans to remove regulations relating to community entertainment. The change will mean that community venues in England and Wales – including community centres, schools, village halls and hospitals – will be exempt from licensing restrictions. The measures to deregulate plays, dance and indoor sport will be put to Parliament in the next few weeks, with the intention of bringing the measures into effect by April 2013, see: http://www.culture.gov.uk/news/media_releases/9652.aspx. I wrote a piece for the Department for Culture, Media and Sport blog welcoming the changes, see: http://blogs.culture.gov.uk/main/2013/01/amateur_arts_welcomes_plans_to.html and Voluntary Arts got a mention in the Weekly e-mail from the Conservative Culture and Creative Industries Team.
