Plays, films, dance and music plans for Falmouth's Prince of Wales Pier
6:00am Monday 14th October 2013 in News
The Falmouth First Community Interest Company is seeking an entertainment licence to enable plays, films, dance productions and live and recorded music events to be held on the town’s Prince of Wales Pier.
The application went before Falmouth’s licensing sub-committee last week when the Community Interest Company’s Sam Groom attended and explained the group wanted an “umbrella licence” which would cover all events to be held on the pier.
“We are not, as a CIC, going to be organising events on the pier, said Sam. “That will be done by other organisers.
“They will have to fill in an application and complete a full risk assessment. If, as an eventorganiser, they want alcohol, they will have to apply for a temporary notice.”
The licence sought would permit plays, films and dance from 9am until 10pm and live and recorded music, and anything similar, from 9am until 11pm – all seven days a week.
Members of the licensing sub-committee supported the application with Councillor John Body saying: “I think as a council we should encourage the use of the pier.”
The application will ultimately be decided by Cornwall Council.
