The Lennox Head Cultural Centre is not a licenced premise.  This means that if you intend to sell alcohol at your event, you will need to apply to Home - Liquor & Gaming NSW for a licence. The website outlines all the information required to lodge your application, including qualifying for the licence and licence conditions.  The online process is easy to follow, but please remember to allow at least six – eight weeks to process your application.

Limited Licence – single function

This licence allows a not-for-profit, sports club or community group to sell alcohol for consumption during a single event. More information.

Some non-for-profit groups may be exempt from requiring a single function liquor licence and may be able to hold up to six events per calendar year without a licence. More information.

Limited Licence – special event

A special event limited licence can be granted if the Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority is satisfied that an event is infrequent or temporary, is genuine and in the public interest, having regard to the objects of the Liquor Act 2007. More information.

This liquor licence can be for profit organisations/individuals.

The Liquor and Gaming NSW website will provide all the information you need to apply, including:

A Site Plan to show:

  • Red boundary for the licensed area,
  • Outline of the entire premises,
  • Location of the bar,
  • Exit and entry to the licensed premises,
  • Direction of north,
  • Adjoining street names labelled on the plan.

The online application process will ask for the following, among others:

  • What security and RSA practices are in place
  • The volume of beer, spirits, wine for the event
  • The capacity
  • Details of date and time
  • Conditions

Please note that requirements may be different depending on the nature of the event.

Applying tips:

Your application can take longer to review if you do not provide all details required for assessment.  You can speed up the process by:

  • Providing all the correct information at the time you apply
  • Respond to requests for missing information as soon as possible.
