UK Government probably about to do something sensible

January 20, 2012

Good heavens! The UK Government is probably about to do something sensible.

Back in 2003, the Licensing Act, brought in to make hosting gigs easier, actually achieved the opposite as so much of our hastily thrown together legislation does. It practically killed small-scale live music in the UK.

Finally, they’re about to simplify the law and make it possible to have amplified gigs with fewer than 200 people in the audience without having to apply for a licence.

Here’s a BBC news item that provides more detail than I can be bothered to type out here:

Live music red tape likely to be relaxed
