Operating at other studios

If you are operating in more than one premise within South Kesteven, each premise must be registered for the activity you are undertaking. There will only be one fee for each person and each activity.

Whilst registration allows you to operate at any other premises registered here, you must contact other authorities if you intend to operate within other districts.
