Temporary Event Notices

What do I need to know?

A Temporary Event Notice (TEN) is a form that applicants provide to the local council, the police and environmental health, letting them know about a planned event at which they intend to carry on licensable activities.

When an event requires a temporary event notice

  • The sale of alcohol – this could be by way of a pay bar or a glass of wine included within the ticket price, or by asking for a donation
  • Extension of hours or specifying a licensed activity which is not currently included on an existing premises licence
  • The provision of hot food and hot drinks between 23:00 and 05:00
  • The provision of regulated entertainment which includes: plays, films, indoor sporting events, boxing/wrestling, live music; recorded music, performance of dance

You can still submit a late TEN up to 5 working days before the event of the TEN using the TEN application form.
