Queen boosts live music

The Live Music Act 2012 has received the Royal Assent. It will give conditional exemption for live music performed to no more than 200 people between 8.00 am and 11.00 pm, and in the same period for unamplified music as long as it does not take place in premises licensed for alcohol. The legislation, which will be welcomed by the live music industry, is likely to come into effect in the autumn.
