Exempt Brass Bands from temporary events notices required under the 2003 licensing Act

Why is this idea important?

We currently pay £21 an event for playing Brass Band concerts , this seems to fulfil no function even revenue collection as I believe it probably cost the local councils more than the £21 in administration costs but it does restrict us especially around Christmas, playing Carol concerts, although I see the needs for such a law (restricting raves etc) I believe its use is too widespread, especially as some groups such as Morris dancer musicians are already exempt.
