Temporary Event Notices

Temporary Event Notices (TENs)

A Temporary Event Notice (TEN) is required if you wish to hold an event involving up to 499 people, at which one or more licensable activities will take place and is not authorised by an existing premises licence or club premises certificate.

A TEN is a notification to the Licensing Authority that an individual intends to carry on licensable activities for a period not exceeding 168 hours or 7 days.

When a TEN is given in accordance with Part 5 of the 2003 Act, a TEN constitutes an authorisation unless withdrawn or cancelled by a counter notice issued by the Licensing Authority.
