There is also the change to the entertainment licensing laws that happened
a few years ago. If a pub didn't have a license prior to the changes then
it has become a nightmare to get one.

My local pub was quite keen to set up a regular music night, but when the
landlord looked into the requirements for getting an entertainment license
he gave up. There were a mass of forms to fill in, a not insignificant
fee and all sorts of rules that had to be conformed to.

So if you have a pub with live music, make sure it keeps going, or you'll
loose it.
