Your members of parliament are currently talking Liquor Legislation and considering the newly created bill. As it stands, this bill opens up the opportunities for the putting on of more live music.
The draft bill seen 12 months ago included the order of occupancy clause, and a postive simplified, cheaper framework for obtaining a licence.
With continued discussions and pressure from many parts of the industry, our State Government has included in this framework the Live Entertainment Licence for venues where the primary purpose of business is the supply of Live Entertainment.
Now is the time to be telling your local members how important Live Music is to you and your local community and the cultural and economic benefits it brings to your area.
For details of who your local members are go to.
