From 1 October, the Performing Animals (Regulation) Act 1925 has been replaced by the Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018.
We are no longer responsible for licences for ‘keeping or training animals for exhibition in the course of a business for educational or entertainment purposes’.
For new licences, please contact the local district or borough council where the animals are kept.
Existing registrations made under the 1925 Act will continue for up to six months after the 2018 Regulations come into force. From 1 April 2019, you must have a valid licence under the 2018 Regulations.
