Do you work with children and young people, of compulsory school age in theatre and the performing arts? Through this work, do your children and young people take part in performances in front of an audience (free or ticketed)? If so – it is likely that you should be making applications to the Education Authority to obtain licenses for each child taking part or applying for exemptions from the requirement to have licences.Parents should also abide by the regulations regarding the number of performances a young person can take part in across a 12 month period, making you aware particularly of those performances in the last 6 months. You are also responsible for ensuring your events are properly chaperoned by EANI registered chaperones.
It has come to our attention that many organisations are unaware of this legislation or uncertain how to apply it to their own work.
