Child modelling/entertainment licensing

Under the Children and Young Persons Act 1963 and Children (Performances and Activities)(England) Regulations 2014, Salford City Council is responsible for the licensing of all school aged children who appear in a performance either on the stage or on television, who take part in certain sporting activities, or who work as models.

Application for licences usually come from the agency who is responsible for the children's entertainment placement.

Licences will be granted if the authority is satisfied that all relevant conditions are met and that all applicable information has been provided.

The pupil's school may veto the issuing of the licence if they think it will prejudice the education, health or welfare of a young person.

If you wish to apply for a licence for children in entertainment or if you would like to apply to become a matron or chaperone please contact child employment on 0161 603 4350 or email
