Performing Rights Society and Phonographic Performance Limited   Recorded music licences. These licences allow us to play recorded music. We have paid £172 for a combined licence for 2018, licence no. 955566.   The price is based on the Hall’s annual income.

Single title screening Licence is needed each time we show a film in public, regardless of whether an entry fee is charged.  This also applies to other Hall users, eg. Children’s parties. There are two options:
1.   Cinema for All booking scheme Hire a DVD from a library of 800 films, pay for a screening licence and return postage @ £85 total per screening.   We have joined Cinema for All as associate members @ £47.50 for year one.  This charge has now increased to £65 for year one.
2.    Buy a DVD from Amazon (say) and pay for a single title screening licence from the film distributors, eg.
FilmBankMedia  Library of 1000 films.
