A child performance licence must be obtained if a child under compulsory school leaving age (from birth up to the end of the school year that the child turns 16 years old) takes part in a public performance or activity or if any of the following apply:
A child does not require a performance licence when:
Children must be in the care of either their parent (the child’s legal guardian) or an approved Chaperone at all times.
Please note, grandparents, uncles, childminders etc., are not legal guardians (unless they are recognised by the courts) and therefore need to be approved in order to be the Chaperone. Parents, unless they are an approved Chaperone, cannot be responsible for children other than their own.
Please download and complete the Chaperone application form. Once this has been received we will contact applicants with further instructions, this will include a DBS check and attendance at a chaperone briefing.
Once approved a Chaperone licence is valid for 3 years.
