Temporary event notices
You will need to apply for a permitted temporary event notice (TEN) if either of the following apply:
- you wish to lawfully carry out licensable activities at premises which do not have a premises licence or club premises certificate
- the activity or the times at which it is to be carried out are not specified on an existing premises licence or club premises certificate
PLEASE NOTE: Currently we are experiencing problems with customers applying for a late Temporary Event Notice on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday when using the link below. If you are having difficulty please apply through GOV.UK.
Applicants for TENs are advised to refer Section 5 of the Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) (No.2) (England) Regulations 2020 for information about the restrictions on gatherings. There is an absolute prohibition on gatherings of 30 or more people that take place unless certain criteria apply in terms of the location and reason for gathering, nature of the organiser, undertaking of risk assessments and putting in place measures etc.
We are encouraging anyone who is deciding on whether to submit a TEN in the forthcoming weeks to contact us to discuss the submission. Moreover, we ask applicants to be mindful of the fact that it is currently unclear when (and exactly how) the current Covid-19 restrictions will be eased and that if the event subject to a TEN cannot proceed because of the restrictions, applicants will not be able to transfer a TEN to another date or obtain a refund for the £21 fee they have paid. The only option will be for the TEN to be withdrawn so that it does not count towards the aggregate number for the premises.
