NSW VENUES GET EXTENDED TRADING FOR SPECIAL EVENTS

The NSW Government has extended the trading times for clubs and pubs for the Australian Open tennis men’s final, the Tamworth country music festival and AFC Asian Cup. Minister for Racing Paul Toole said the later trading would enable patrons to gather and socialise at venues later at night for these special events.

“The extensions are part of the NSW Government’s support for major cultural and sports events that boost entertainment options and support local economies,” Toole said.

Standard 10pm Sunday trading across NSW has been extended to midnight for the Australian Open men’s tennis final on January 27.

Venues in the Tamworth local government area can open until midnight on Sunday, January 20, and Sunday, January 27, for the Tamworth country music festival.

A range of statewide trading extensions have also been approved for venues showing live telecasts of the Asian Football Confederation’s Asian Cup being held in the United Arab Emirates. The extensions will apply only for matches featuring the Socceroos.The extended trading hours do not apply to take-away liquor sales.

Venues already approved to trade during or beyond the extended hours can operate as usual. Hotels and clubs must still comply with any individual trading restrictions or other special conditions that apply to their licences under the Liquor Act.
