Ok, im from the UK, so things might be different in different places, but.... To do magic for the public will I need to apply for an entertainment license? If so how?

Cheers

Contact your local authorities. The town Council or whatever you have in UK. They will tell you. I would just go out and start busking and if the police tell you that you need a licence ask them where to apply. Chances are that if you're polite and don't mouth off to the constable you'll just get a verbal warning. Remember it is far easier to beg forgiveness than to ask permission.

no you don't, but you do have to be at least 16. (If restaurant)

If busking, dont even think about it.

Very few places allowed.

1. Private property, ie. Covent Garden, need a license, and audition.
2. London Underground, need a license.

Try it on the street or without a license and you will find your self with more than a verbal warning.
