Temporary Events Notice
You will need a temporary event notice (TEN) if you want to:
- sell or supply alcohol
- provide entertainment such as live or recorded music, or dancing
- sell hot food or drink between 11pm and 5am
There are some restrictions. The event cannot:
- have more than 499 people present at any time including staff
- last longer than 7 days or 168 hours
Apply for a temporary event notice
Read the terms and conditions before starting your application.
You must apply at least 10 working days before your event or between 5 and 9 working days for a late TEN.
You will have to pay a fee of £21.
For events in a public space, you must also get permission from our events team.
What happens next
Our environmental health team and the police have 3 days to check your application.
If they object to your application, we will refer your application to a licensing panel hearing. If you are applying for a late TEN we will refuse your application.
If we don’t receive any objections within 3 days, we will approve your TEN by email.
