Thank you to the PRS for giving us a licence to allow our Parents Group to play music at Trans Pride 2017. PRS for Music licences the use of copyright music across the UK, giving businesses and organisations the legal permission they need to play the music they want. These licences ensure that music publishers, songwriters and composers are fairly rewarded with royalties so they can keep making music - and mean that they’re able to support music at events like this.
