At a guess, BCC has public liability insurance that covers all events that are 
held at the library. since it is a public facility for all residents  of 
Brisbane.  UQ on the otherhand likely has public insurance that covers UQ 
events only. as Humbug is not a part of UQ its not covered and they require 
that HUMBUG provides its own and wants proof that they do.  Its also possible 
that there is no coverage at the Library and nothing has ever happened that 
has warrented them to ensure that groups using their facilities have 
appropriate coverage

Just a stab in the dark here.
