What is a Theatre Licence?
If you wish to run a theatre to be used for the public performance of plays and dramatic pieces, then a Theatre Licence will be required.
The definition of a play includes:
any dramatic piece involving speech, singing or action and the playing of a role.
ballets and musicals
In addition to the main purpose-built theatres which hold an annual licence, there are a number of community halls or similar premises which put on performances that require an occasional licence.
An occasional Theatre Licence can be granted for a few days or for specific periods.
How to apply for a Theatre Licence
Theatre Licences must be made via your local council. You can find the contact details for your local council at the Official UK Government Website.
