PRS License Question


Recommended Posts

Our village is planning a village picnic and ask if my band can provide some entertainment.

Would this require a licence?  Its a one off event ( most likely outside)

Who would be responsible for obtaining the license and how long does it last?

You can find a huge amount of info on the PRS website for all sorts of venues and I’ve seen one at around £26 per day…but don’t quote me on this! It be easier to call PRS and ask for the licensing dept .

I suspect 99% of these sort of events don't have licences at all.

And the PRS is probably not that bothered about hunting down offenders for a cover of some 1970s tune enjoyed by the people at the cake stall and a few dog walkers!

I'm with Fretmeister on this. If your village doesn't put on music regularly, you won't be on anyone's radar and nobody will care.

 

The amount of money that will fail to reach the big music conglomerates that own most of the copyrights will be measured in tiny, tiny fractions of a penny.

I would say, a lot of these kinds of events DO have licences. Schools, church fetes etc would know to obtain a licence because their main premises (the school (hall), the church hall etc) would already have one. It is the venue's responsibility to have a licence, not the performer(s).

 

Unless you are the owner/lessee of the venue, you don't need to worry.
