Temporary Event Notices

If you’re organising an event and want to sell or supply alcohol, or provide entertainment such as music, dancing or film, but you don’t hold a premises licence or club premises certificate, then you may need to submit a Temporary Event Notice (TEN).

To find out whether your event needs a TEN, please see GOV.UK.

How to apply

You should apply at least ten working days before the event. Each notice costs £21.

What happens next

When we receive your temporary event notice, we’ll send you an acknowledgement by the end of the next working day.

If you submit your form online, we will pass it on to the Police and our Environmental Health team on your behalf.

If they object to your Temporary Event Notice, they’ll issue an objection notice within three working days. If this happens, we will arrange a hearing to decide if your notice should be approved.

If you submit your TEN less than ten working days before the event and an objection is received, we will send you a counter notice, meaning that you will not be allowed to go ahead with the event.

If the event is on our land, we will contact you directly about your application.
