New Legislative Reform (Entertainment Licensing) Order 2014 comes into force

On 6th April 2015, the Legislative Reform (Entertainment Licensing) Order 2014 will be implemented.

The effect of this order, for alcohol licensed premises, is that there is further deregulation relating both to the provision of live music and the playing of recorded music.

(b) at a time when the premises are open for the purposes of being used for the supply of alcohol for consumption on the premises,

(c) in the presence of an audience of no more than 500 persons, and

(d) between 08.00-23.00 on the same day, or where the Secretary of State makes an order relaxing opening hours for special occasions, between the hours specified in that order.
