Success for Publican's Listen Up! campaign as government launches consultation to alter Licensing Act
Plans to offer an exemption to pubs hosting music for 100 people or less have been confirmed by the government.
The Department for Culture, Media and Sport launched a consultation last week on plans to alter the Licensing Act, claiming will make it easier for small venues to host live music. The announcement follows huge pressure from live music campaigners and The Publican, in the form of the Listen Up! campaign.
Licensing minister Gerry Sutcliffe said: “Going to see a band, musician or singer is a very important part of many people’s lives and we’re keen to do what we can to support audiences and musicians. However Sutcliffe warned the exemption could be revoked at a pub if there had been problems with noise, nuisance or disorder. And if the exemption becomes law it would only apply to indoor performances between 8am and 11pm. Residents and authorities such as the police would also have the power to call for an exemption to be revoked. Martin Rawlings, director of pub and leisure at the British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA) said: “The BBPA welcomes any measures that can help pubs overcome existing barriers to putting on live music, helping aspiring and established musicians to reach audiences while at the same time boosting business, particularly during these difficult economic times. The consultation is avail able at: http://www.culture.gov.uk/reference_library/consultations/6499.aspx
