Judge slaps music ban on Stourbridge night spot

A high court judge has imposed the sound of silence on a Stourbridge night club, because it doesn’t hold a current music license.

The proprietors of The Arena on Hagley Road were taken to London’s High Court after police called at the venue and heard music being played, when the club did not hold a current Phonographic Performance Ltd (PPL) license.

Venues playing music to the public are required to hold a PPL licence which means they comply with the law around liver performance

Failure to comply with the ruling until the licenses are up to date, could result in fines of up to £10,000, and six months in prison for the individuals responsible.
