Jazz star Jamie Cullum plans to hold an "illegal" gig where he and a friend perform in a bar not licensed to play music as part of a revolt against the Government's new licensing laws. He is objecting to the scrapping of the so-called "two-in-a-bar" rule which allowed solo artistes or duos to perform in pubs, clubs and restaurants without an entertainment licence. Now landlords must pay £1,000 for a licence or risk a £20,000 fine and six months in jail. Jamie believes the new rules will have a disastrous effect on young musicians, who won't get the opportunity to play in public. He says he plans to "kick up a real stink" by getting arrested for an unlicensed performance. The Mail on Sunday 22/01/06 page 45
