Making it easier to put on film nights

The next ‘red tape’ legislation to go before Parliament includes a provision “deregulating the showing of ‘not-for-profit’ film in village halls and community centres, making it easier for small charities and community groups to hold film nights”.

As reported by Civil Society Media, the draft Deregulation Bill removes the requirement for licences provided the screening takes place between 8am and 11pm, is not intended as a profit-making event, and the audience is no more than 500 people, http://www.civilsociety.co.uk/finance/news/content/15640/.
