Temporary event notices

What is a temporary event notice?

A temporary event notice (TEN) is a procedure whereby small-scale one off events involving licensable activities can take place without any further authorisation.

A statutory ‘Notification’ must be served on the licensing authority and ‘relevant persons’ who can object on the grounds of one or more of the four licensing objectives.

Licensable activities

  • Sale by retail of alcohol;
  • Supply of alcohol to a club member;
  • The provision of regulated entertainment; and
  • The provision of late night refreshment

How to apply

The application must be made at least 10 clear working days in advance of the event. The fee is £21 and full details of the application requirements and the application form is available from the GOV.UK.

A 'late TEN' can be applied for if an application has not been made in time.  The latest you can apply for a 'late TEN' is 5 working day before the event, however the Police and/or Environmental Health may object to the notice. If an ojection to the event is made, the TEN will be refused and there is no right of appeal. 

The temporary event notice must be served on the following;
