‘Live Music Act’ Means No More Small Venue Licences in the UK
Venues with a capacity of less than 200 people will no longer need a licence in order to stage live music events says BBC News. Enter the Live Music Act has been put in place in order to give small businesses and venues room to grow, reports .
UK Music estimates that this could see an extra 13,000 venues across the UK starting to host their own live music nights. Under the new bill, live unamplified music can also now be played in any location. The only restriction on the music is that it must only be played between the hours of 8am and 11pm.
