Theatre Licence

Music and Singing Licence


The Waiver of Excise Duty on on-trade liquor licences will not be extended to renewals in 2022.

The Public Health Acts Amendment Act 1890 regulates:

  • music
  • singing
  • and
  • public entertainment

which takes place in locations that have licences for the sale of intoxicating liquor. 

As theatre owners belong to this group, you will need a Music and Singing Licence to apply for your Theatre Licence. You should apply to the Annual District Licensing Court. On receipt of your Court Certificate, you should submit it to the National Excise Licence Office.

You will need a new Music and Singing Licence each year to renew your Publican’s Licence (Ordinary) Theatre Licence.
