Temporary Event Notices
If you wish to hold an ad-hoc event in England or Wales, you must give a Temporary Event Notice (TEN) to your local licensing authority. TEN's can only be used when the number of people attending the event, including staff, performers and guests, is 499 people or less. If your event is of a larger scale than this, you must apply for a time limited Premises Licence.
From the 25th April 2012, the rules on TEN's have been slightly amended. There are now two types of notices, although the same new application form will be used for both. TENs may now be for a period of 168 hours, but there is an overriding limit of 15 notices per premises per calendar year and a maximum of 21 days per premises per calendar year.
- Normal TEN - This must be submitted a minimum of 10 clear working days before the event, not counting the day of the event or the day it is received. The Police and Environmental Health will now be able to object on any one or more of the four licensing objectives under the Licensing Act 2003. Conditions may also be added to the notice.
- Late TEN - This must be submitted between 5 and 9 clear working days before the event, not counting the day of the event or the day it is received.
You must tick the box on the form stating that it is a late TEN.
If the Police or Environmental Health object, the event may not go ahead. There is no appeal to this decision.
Only 2 Late TEN's can be submitted per year by a non-Personal Licence holder, or 10 per year by the holder of a Personal Licence.
The fee for a TEN is £21.00 which must be sent to the Licensing department with the notification; Licensing, Stratford-on-Avon D.C., Elizabeth House, Church Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, CV37 6HX.
Applicants must also send copies of the notification to Warwickshire Police Licensing Team and the Environmental Health service at Stratford-on-Avon D.C.Warwickshire Police Licensing TeamWarwickshire Justice CentreNewbold TerraceLeamington SpaCV32 4ELsouthwarksliquorlicensing@warwickshire.pnn.police.uk
