Temporary event notice

You must be 18 years or older to submit a TEN and can only submit a maximum of five TENs per year if you do not hold a personal licence under the Licensing Act 2003.  If you do hold a personal licence, you can submit a maximum of 50 TENs per year, however you are limited to a maximum number of 12 TENs per premises. The number of times a person (the "premises user") may give a late temporary event notice is 10 times per year for a personal licence holder and 2 times per year for other people.

The limits applying to late temporary event notices are included within the overall limits applying to the total number of temporary event notices.

Your event must involve no more than 499 people at any one time and last no more than 168 hours, with a minimum of 24 hours between your event and the start or finish of another TEN. Premises are limited to a maximum of 15 TENs per calendar year with a total maximum duration of 21 days.

The licensable activities requested must be carried out as detailed in the Temporary Event Notice. The notice must be in a specific format and should contain:

  • if alcohol is to be supplied, a statement confirming that it is a condition of using the premises that the supplies are made under the premises user's authority
  • a statement relating to certain matters
  • details of the licensable activities
