Running Events at your Flat or Home

Contents

We get it – running an event at your flat or home seems like a great way to run your event for cheap and provide a fun, unrestricted atmosphere. However it comes with a number of risks, all of which you should consider before going ahead.

Know the law

Alcohol
Remember that any event involving alcohol where you are charging for attendance, you require a licence for.

Since your flat or home is not a licence premise, and you cannot get special licences for private residences, if you are selling tickets, your event involves alcohol, and you’re running it at your home or flat, you risk a $20,000 fine.

Noise
You have an obligation to ensure that the noise you make from your flat or home does not exceed a reasonable level that disturbs or annoys people day or night.

Health and Safety
A reminder that health and safety does not stop applying just because you’re not on campus. The law still applies to events run on private property.
