Exemptions where a licence is not required – Regulation 37(3a)
- If a child takes part in four or less performances in any six month period (provided there is no absence from school)
- School performances
- Performances put on by a Body of Persons (see document at bottom of page) approved by the Secretary of State (Home Office) or the Local Authority
- Any activity that the Local Authority does not consider to be a performance
Although a child may be exempt from requiring a licence if the exemption criteria is met, the regulations do require the licence holder to adhere to certain parts of the Regulations. Therefore, if a child performance license is not required we still request that the organiser of the performance/show notifies the Local Authority. An exemption from licensing application form is available on request at the address below or can be downloaded at the bottom of this page. The form should be sent so as to reach the licensing authority not less than twenty-one days before the first performance for which the exemption is requested.
