Temporary event notice
Contact us for a temporary event notice (TEN) if you want to carry out a ‘licensable activity’ on unlicensed premises.
Licensable activity includes:
- Selling alcohol
- Serving alcohol to members of a private club
- Providing entertainment (eg music, dancing or indoor sporting events)
- Serving hot food or drink between 11pm and 5am
You must apply for a TEN at least ten working days before your event. You must also send a copy of the TEN to the police at least ten working days before the event. If you apply online, we'll contact the police for you.
The date of submitting the TEN and the day of the event are not included in the total number of working days before the event.
You can only apply for a TEN as an individual, not an organisation. You need a TEN for each event you hold on the same premises.
You can get up to five TENs a year. If you already have a personal licence to sell alcohol, you can be given up to 50 TENs a year.
A single premises can apply for up to 15 TENs in one year, as long as the total length of the events is not more than 21 days.
