With licences available from CCLI and Phonographic Performance Ltd. (PPL) you can use music and movies to enhance your activities and for specific promotions and events.
If you play commercial music recordings (CDs, MP3s etc.) you’ll need a PRS for Music Church Licence as well as a licence directly from Phonographic Performance Ltd (PPL). To contact PPL visit: www.ppluk.com or call 020 7534 1070.
You need both licences because each organisation represents different rights within a recording. PRS for Music represent the rights of composers, copyright owners and music publishers, while PPL represent the rights of the artists and producers of that specific recording.
If music is performed live on your premises you only need the PRS for Music Church Licence. As CCLI are agents for PRS for Music, you can purchase this directly from us.

If you only wish to show films during a one-off event, a Single Title Screening Licence (STSL) available directly from www.filmbank.co.uk could cover you instead of a CVL. The STSL does permit you to charge for entry.
