- selling alcohol
- serving alcohol to members of a private club

Licensing Policy Statement (PDF)
You must also check:
- if you need any other permissions, such as permission from the landowner to use the site
- if there are any restrictions, such as restrictions on planning permission or restrictions on your lease
- The Temporary Event Notice will not override these permissions and you must make sure you are complying with all restrictions.
When to apply
- We must receive your Standard Temporary Event Notice (TEN) at least 10 working days before your event.
- We can accept an application for a notice no later than five working days before your event but this will be a Late Temporary Event Notice (late TEN).
- The process and forms are the same for both Standard and Late Temporary Event Notices.
Temporary Event Notice - £21.00
Late Temporary Notice - £21.00
Processing and timescales
- We will process a standard Temporary Event Notice on the next working day and this will take 10 working days. If we receive an objection, we will issue a counter notice, outlining the objection. You may appeal to the local magistrate Court within 21 days, but not within 5 working days of the event.
- We will process a Late Temporary Event Notice on the next working day and this will take 5 working days. If we receive an objection, we will issue a counter notice outlining the objection and the event will not be allowed.
- Keep your Temporary Event Notice in a safe place at the event.
- You must display a copy of the Temporary Event Notice in a prominent location at the premises.
