GUEST,ET Sign a E Petition to 10 Downing St PELs (506* d) RE: Sign a E Petition to 10 Downing St PELs 20 Jan 03

Playing music of any sort at unscheduled events anywhere is a serious problem - how do you notify local authorities up and down the country - and what do they licence - eg playing pipes as I do at historical re-encatments, Stately Homes, etc. I don't unfortunately, own Rockingham Castle or Burton Agnes Hall, but if I did I wander the grounds and surrounds. Is this "premises"?. Its certainly a "place" under the Act. Is it entertainment - playing Leicestershire Smallpipes I could argue certainly not but the Bill says it is.

If the petition reached 100,000 would they listen? I fear not and the only public reaction will be if Jobsworth of the music police picks on the wrong organisation - eg the police band in a local bandstand or the Salvation Army at the corner of the Street.
