You wouldn’t be wrong in thinking that the only licence that would be essential during the season to be jolly would be Santa’s driving licence for his reindeer’s and sleigh, but actually, to truly make Christmas a magical one this year, there are 3 festive licences that are just as important as mistletoe and wine to truly make it a winter wonderland this time of the year.
Christmas Lights Licence
What is time of the year without a little bit of light. While you certainly don’t need a licence to put a Christmas tree up with flickering festive lights over your house, if you want to splash your village or town with Christmas cheer, you will need to apply for a Christmas Lights Licence.
Also referred to as merely seeking decorative lighting consent, this is a licence that authorises ornaments and lights to be hung over from a road, as well as from lamp posts and trees around the local community.
Christmas Music Licence
Now we have the Christmas lights, how about a bit of festive music to really put you in the mood for the season to be jolly.
If you are a business and are looking to add the sound of Christmas in to your coffee shop or market, then a Christmas Music Licence is all you will need in your stocking this year. A Christmas Music Licence gives applicants the legal permission to play the likes of Mariah Carey and Slade down the isles and through the shop, as customers and employees hum along in synchronised festive cheer.
Christmas Carol Licence
What better way to top of a festive day then with a bit of Christmas carols to really make it a season to be jolly. A Christmas Carol Licence allows groups of singers to assemble together in public and serenade their local community with enchanting carols. While having to apply for a licence to sing in public might sound like humbug, it is actually essential in order to maintain crowd control and health and safety in the local community.
What Get Licensed Says
While having to get a licence for the festive season activities may be the equivalent of finding a lump of coal in your stocking, having a licence is necessary to ensure that the law is being followed, and that protocols designed to keep people safe are put into practice. Even during the season to be jolly.
