A limited licence – special event
A limited – special event licence is applicable to temporary and infrequent events that have a direct and significant social or economic benefit to the community at a regional, state, or national level.
A limited – special event licence allows the sale or supply of alcohol at a venue that doesn’t hold a liquor licence, provided that the sale / supply of alcohol is not the sole reason for holding the event.
Special events that have qualified in the past are:
- an annual 4-day regional arts and music festival
- a World Cup/World Championship sports competition
- a music festival held in the Domain and expected to attract more than 25,000 people, including interstate, national and international guests.
Public events with an anticipated patron capacity of 2,000 or more, must lodge additional forms.
There is no restriction on under 18’s being present at a special event held under a limited licence.
