Free Workshops on Live Music Reforms


On Monday 26 October 2009 the NSW Government abolished Place of Public Entertainment Licenses (POPE) that were required for local venues to play live music. These reforms have made it easier for licensed venues to host live entertainment and music.

In a bid to help Venue operators, council, performers and regulators with deciphering these reforms, the NSW Government is hosting two free two hour workshop on recent changes to the planning system (removal of POPES) for live entertainment in NSW.These workshops will be held on Tuesday, 1 December & Wednesday, 9 December 2009.
