What is a Child Performance Licence?
A Child Performance Licence is required if a child who is not over compulsory school age is due to participate in a play or production.
We make having a child performance licence a simple, stress-free process ✅
In order to obtain a Child Performance Licence, you will need to know:
a public performance (such as TV, film, theatre or musical)
a sporting event for which the child will be paid
a modelling assignment that you are organising and for which the child will be paid
How to apply for a Child Performance Licence
The person in charge of the event must apply to the child’s local council for a Child Performance Licence. This is a requirement of the Children (Performance) Regulations 1968.
Child Performance Licences must be made via your local council. You can find the contact details for your local council at the Official UK Government Website.
Must the child be chaperoned once licensed?
it is a legal requirement that children who have been issued with a Child Performance Licence must be supervised at all times by a licensed chaperone or matron, unless they are under the direct supervision of their parent or a tutor.
