A licence is required where you intend to have entertainment such as a dance, concert,
fairground or other form of entertainment to which members of the public are to
be admitted whether some payment is made for admission or not.
Please contact us for a full list of entertainment premises that require a licence.
You would not normally require a licence for:
- An athletic or sports ground which is being used for these purposes
- Entertainment that is being provided in premises that already is licensed under
liquor licensing laws and where the Operating Plan includes the entertainment
- If you hold a current theatre or cinema licence
Generally, a licence would not be required for the holding of a community fete, gala
day or other similar event which is free to the public.
