Apply for a Body of Persons Approval

A Body of Persons Approval (BOPA) allows organisations to have an overall licence for a performance. 

This means you do not need a licence for each individual child.

All performances must comply with the law. You must apply at least 21 days before the first performance.

You must ensure that:

  • the organisation complies with licensing and performance regulations
  • all performances and rehearsals take place in Lincolnshire
  • performances and rehearsals must take place outside of school hours
  • the organisation must have a child safeguarding policy
  • no payment will be made to, or on behalf of the child, other than expenses

A BOPA licence is free of charge.
