Performing animal licence


About this licence

You need to register with us if you have performing animals that will be in shows in Brent.

It is against the law for anyone to train or exhibit a performing animal unless they are registered to do so under the Performing Animals (Regulation) Act 1925 and have obtained a Performing Animals Certificate of Registration. The Act is designed to cover the use of animals in stage performances, at circuses, as part of an exhibition and so on.

The description of the performance you give us must give a general idea of what is done by animals, should state the approximate duration of the performance, the number of times it is usually given in the same day, and the number of animals of each kind taking part in the performance.
