Unfortunately, that doesn’t look like happening. Since the Child Performance and Activities (England) Regulations took effect in 2015, many community groups that put on live music events with children have struggled to stay afloat. The red tape is forcing many to reconsider whether they carry on.

Officials at the British and International Federation of Festivals say the rules mean local authorities ask volunteer groups for the same information they demand from professional theatres that put children on stage. The parents, carers or guardian of a seven-year-old playing the piano for a minute in a community centre in a local music competition must hand over information about their child’s health and school as well as their address and phone number.

Spreadsheets with hundreds of names arrive in council offices, but not before details have been negotiated with the parents, who have rights under the GDPR rules to know their information is secure.

All it takes is for the child to be paid, the child to pay to enter the competition or the attendees to pay an entrance fee for the regulations to take effect (even if it’s only 50p).

There could be a more proportionate response from the Department for Education, which is the responsible ministry. It would be easy to blame the situation on Brexit or the lack of resources and time ministers can devote to any other subject. But as with GCSEs, there seems to be no will to support creativity. Instead, the dead hand of bureaucracy wins the day.
