Temporary Event Notice (TEN)

A Temporary Event Notice (TEN) is given by an individual (a premises user) and authorises the premises user to conduct one or more licensable activities at a premises for no more than 168 hours (7 days).

TENs can be used to authorise relatively small-scale ad hoc events held in or on any premises involving no more then 499 people at any one time, subject to certain restrictions.

Please read our guidance document for premises users who plan to submit a TEN to hold an event during the coronavirus pandemic. This document includes advice on information to provide with your application for both the Police and Environmental Health to consider in determining their response to your submission.
