Hi,
Do have a look through January News, there was a delay in displaying some of it (hardware problems).


"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to ...
recognise that music and dance should not be restricted by burdensome licensing regulations."
:

An increasingly fast erosion of pubs in Kent, but the music seems to be hanging on in there, with some potential new venues being tried out.
What is your perception of the effects of the new licencing laws ? In particular, how do they seem to be affecting the music ?
There is a new official e-petition regarding these laws, see the entry in the Jobs, Auditions, Funding + Licencing section, as well as this text below.

This e-petition shows signs of being a possibly very influential petition - the number who have signed are growing rapidly - when the letter was sent by Doug Bailey the petition had accummulated 2,800 signatures, and was in position 19 - as of Sunday evening, 4th February, it has 7,738 signatures and is in position 12 - since I signed it, just before lunch today, a further 150 people have signed it - and it has a longer time to run than all but one of the petitions above it.

The Live Music Forum (LMF) was established in 2004 following the passage of the Licensing Act, 2003, to monitor the impact of the Act on live music, and to promote live music performance. It comprises representatives from across the industry and non- commercial sectors, as well as local government and the hospitality industry.

The Department for culture media and sport, in association with the Live Music Forum contracted Ipsos-MORI in July 2006 to carry out a survey focused on the experience of smaller venues in applying for new licenses following the introduction of the new Licensing Act 2003. The research brief and the resultant reports are discussed on the department's website.

If you like live music - as opposed to just canned and pre-prepared entertainment, which is un-regulated - and believe that live music and dancing should not be treated as though they were dangerous to the public, then this e-petition to the prime minister is your chance to make your views known : http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/licensing/

For the monent, if you want to put on nearly any form of musical or entertainment event - even for charity, or in a school - then, for single events you probably need to fill in a Temporary Events Notice (TEN) form, pay £21, and tell the police.
The Temporary Events Notice (TEN) forms should be available from your local area council - for Canterbury, go to their page on : Serving A Temporary Events Notice, and download the form.
