Scottish Local Authorities are threatening to impose a new regime from 1st April requiring all events, free or not, whether for 1 day or 1 year to be licensed.  Obtaining such a license can be expensive and can take weeks or months.  It is feared such a new regime will prevent many small scale arts event from taking place at all.  Some see this as a tax on arts, others as censorship, others as bureaucracy gone to extremes and others as a form of political control.

About tightlacedtheatre

Tightlaced Theatre is a new writing and training company based in Edinburgh. Founded in 2008 by Artistic Director Jen McGregor, Tightlaced has evolved into an ensemble that trains together regularly using Aileen Gonsalves' Affectable Acting technique. Tightlaced aims to meet the challenges facing emerging artists now. We need opportunities to put our work before the public, get feedback so we can hone our craft and connect with our peers. We foster an holistic approach to theatremaking based on self-awareness, creative equality, seeing clearly and engagement with the world around us.
