You can apply for an exemption from a child performance licence if the performance runs for four days or less and the following apply:
If the above doesn't apply you will need a child performance licence or to apply for a Body of Person Approval (BOPA) as long as you meet the BOPA criteria.
Please submit your exemption application at least 21 days before the start of the performance or activity. If the child does need a licence once the exemption has been submitted, we can not guarantee the processing of this in time for your performance.

Please note, we only licence children who live in Rutland.
You must have an appropriate adult as a chaperone to be in charge of the child throughout the performance period.
Please ensure that you have read and fully understood the statutory requirements for the licence you are applying for. Failure to do so may lead to the licence being revoked and possible prosecution.
