Licences and Written Agreements
✔ Brexit Regulations: International Touring.
✔ Temporary Event Notice may be needed for previews in public spaces if not part of an event.
✔ PRS (the Performing Rights Society for rights and royalty payments to use existing music).
✔ Insurance: Public Liability, see Sharing the Work.

Health and Safety Compliance
✔ RAMS – Risk Assessments and Method Statements:
✔ Electrical Safety: Read this useful leaflet on Electrical Safety from HSE. Festivals and Local Authorities insist that all portable electrical appliances are PAT tested annually and that you prove that a PAT Test has been carried out – normally by putting a dated sticker on the plug. Further information is available on the HSE website. Check rules around use of generators with the event organiser or site owner.
✔ First Aid: Ensure you carry a first aid kit and at least one member of your crew is qualified to provide first aid at work. St John’s Ambulance provide First Aid at Work courses. You can keep prices down by sharing the course with others.
✔ Food Hygiene Certificate (if serving food/drink as part of a show). Food Hygiene courses are available here.
✔ PIPA Inflatable Inspection: An inspection scheme set up by the inflatable play industry to ensure that children’s inflatable play equipment conforms to recognised standards. The scheme is supported by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) who were consulted at every stage of its development.
Bradford Specific Information
✔ Public Safety Liaison Group (PSLG). If you are planning to hold your own event you need to notify the council and work with their PSLG to ensure that your event can go ahead safely. In other local authorities the PSLG can also be referred to as the SAG (Safety Advisory Group).
