Performing Rights Licences

Performing Rights Licences

Licences should be purchased prior to any public performance. Performances on school premises for staff and pupils only do not constitute a public performance. A public performance is one which members of the public are invited to watch. These include (but are not limited to) parents, friends, governing bodies and pupils from other schools.

Youth theatres, drama clubs and junior drama groups must purchase a performing rights licence for all public performances of any Arts On The Move play. These licences do not constitute any public performing licence which may be required by local authorities.

Any school or organisation staging a performance without a required licence shall be deemed to be in breach of licensing requirements. A retrospective licence fee (£100 per performance or 50% of box office, whichever is greater) will become immediately payable. Your premises and liability insurance could also be negated due to staging unauthorised performances.

The paperback editions of Arts On The Move plays include a free performing rights licence which permits one public performance of that play. The licence is valid for two months. Not all play titles are currently available in paperback format.

All download editions of Arts On The Move plays do not include a performing rights licence and one must be purchased separately if a public performance is planned.

Mini Plays: The performing rights licence permits a single class or group to give one public performance of the named play. Valid for two months.

One Act Plays: The performing rights licence permits a single class or group to give up to five public performances of the named play. Valid for six months.

Full-length Plays: The performing rights licence permits a single class or group to give up to five public performances of the named play. Valid for six months.

Musicals: The performing rights licence permits a single class or group to give up to five public performances of the named play. Valid for six months.

Licences are available to purchase on the detail page for each play. Arts On The Move retains the right to revoke or refuse licences at any time.
