RESTRICTIONS ON OUTDOOR EVENTS EASED
The NSW Government today announced that as of Monday 23 November there will be increased capacity for controlled outdoor events (such as concerts) that are ticketed and held in an enclosed or fenced area:
Up to 3,000 people will be able to attend with 1 person per 2 square metres if assigned a seat, or 1 person per 4 square metres if seated in an allocated seated area (e.g. where the grass is marked or on picnic rugs).
This is a welcome step on the long road back towards normalcy and we encourage people to get out and take in as much live music as possible over this Summer as restrictions continue to be eased.
