Theatres Act 1968 consultation form

This consultation is now closed. If you have any queries please get in touch with Licensing.

  • Name
  • Please choose which of the following applies to you (select only one item)

  • 1. Do you think that premises that are used for the public performance of plays should be licensed under the public entertainment licensing regime?

  • 2. Do you think that it is necessary to license the public performance of plays for the preservation of public order and safety and the prevention of crime?

  • 3. The definition of a play currently given in the Theatres Act 1968 is:

    (a) Any dramatic piece, whether involving improvisation or not, which is given wholly or in part by one or more persons actually present and performing and in which the whole or a major proportion of what is done by the person or persons performing, whether by way of speech, singing or action, involves the playing of a role; and

    (b) Any ballet given wholly or in part by one or more persons actually present and performing, whether or not it falls within paragraph (a) of this definition.

    Do you agree that if public performances of plays were licensed under the public entertainment regime that this definition could be used?

  • 4. If public performances of plays were licensed under the public entertainment regime, should this only apply to plays where there is a charge to the public?

  • 5. If public performances of plays were licensed under the public entertainment regime, should this apply to both indoor premises and outdoor premises used for the performance of plays?

  • 6. If public performance of plays were licensed under the public entertainment regime, should all venues be required to have a licence or should smaller venues (based on audience capacity) be excluded?
