Enmore Theatre becomes first Sydney venue to be protected from noise complaints


Inner West Council Mayor, Darcy Byrne, has confirmed that Enmore Road, including the renowned Greek-owned Enmore Theatre, will become the first ‘Special Entertainment Precinct’ in NSW.

This news comes after members of the Inner West Council unanimously passed a motion last night, calling for the popular inner west theatre to be granted so-called ‘special entertainment precinct’ privileges under the Liquor Amendment (Night-time Economy) Act 2020.

The unanimous vote will see the venue become the first in Sydney to be further protected from noise complaints, as they will now be dealt with by the Inner West Council themselves.

The theatre will also be allowed to extend trading hours on live music and performance nights.


“This groundbreaking change will give real incentives for venues to host live music instead of pokies, through late trading allowances and reduced avenues for noise complaints against music venues,” Mayor Byrne said in a Facebook post.

Century Venues, the owners of Enmore Theatre, welcomed the news with open arms.

“The designation of the Enmore Theatre as an entertainment precinct under the new legislation is a great step forward not just for us at Century Venues but the entire live performance sector,” Century Venues Executive Director, Greg Khoury, said.

“No other night time business generates greater economic flow-on effects to communities than live performance spaces.”
