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

You must give at least 10 working days' notice for a standard temporary event notice and between 5 and 9 working days' notice for a late temporary event notice.  This does not include the day of the event or the day the notice is received by the licensing authority.  If you fail to comply with this timescale, the notice will be rejected and you will be unable to proceed with the event.

Please note that late TENs should only be given in exceptional circumstances where it is not possible to give a standard TEN.

To apply you will also need to:

  • read the guidance notes on temporary event notices (on right hand side)
  • pay the appropriate application fee (See fees and charges at http://www.torridge.gov.uk/article/12721/Financial-Services-Publications). This fee is to cover the processing of the application and is non-refundable in the event that the notice is withdrawn, invalid or subject to a counter notice.
