Community Building Music Licence

Music in community buildings (run by voluntary organisations) can be used for different events and activities.

Whether you’re playing music at functions in community centres or for entertainment purposes in village halls, you’ll usually need a music licence for your community building.

By obtaining TheMusicLicence you’ll be able to play PRS for Music and PPL music legally in your community building and enjoy its benefits whilst ensuring that its creators are fairly rewarded for their work.
