Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this Peter.

Assuming this is a club which contains members then yes.

You would need a PRS and PPL licence, as this is playing music outisde a public setting.

UK courts have given guidance on its meaning and ruled that it is any playing of music outside of a domestic setting, so anything beyond a normal home etc.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
