What is a premises licence?

A premises licence authorises the use of any premises (vehicle, vessel or moveable structure or any place or a part of any premises), for licensable activities. A single licence covers all activities. However, if alcohol is sold or supplied a personal licence holder and a designated premises supervisor are a mandatory requirement.

Licensable activities include the following:

  • sale by retail of alcohol
  • a performance of a play
  • an exhibition of a film
  • an indoor sporting event
  • a boxing or wrestling entertainment
  • a performance of live music
  • any playing of recorded music
  • dancing
  • any entertainment of a similar description to that falling within the performance of live music, the playing of recorded music and dancing
  • late night refreshment (hot food or hot drink between 11pm and 5am)
