Children in entertainment
If a child of school age or below is involved in performance activities, they must have an individual performance licence or be covered by a Body of Person Approval and be chaperoned at all times.
Performance activities include:
- stage or in television, such as films and commercials
- paid or professional sport
For children living in Essex, the person responsible for the production need to apply to us for a performance licence.
