From 1 January 2024, the number of temporary event notices that a premises user can give is 15 per calendar year. The maximum number of days a temporary event may be held at a premises is 21 days per calendar year.
To hold a one-off event, you need to supply a temporary event notice to us at least 10 working days before the planned event. We will then consult with the Police and Environmental Health.
The notice should tell us:
- if alcohol will be supplied
- details of any licensable activities
- the event period (no more than 7 days, with at least 24 hours between events)
- times when activities will take place
- the number of people proposed to be allowed on the premises (maximum 499 at any one time)
If the Police or Environmental Health has any objections, they may serve an objection notice which will result in a hearing.
It is a criminal offence to carry out unlicensed activities and, if convicted, you could be given a £20,000 fine.
You need to email email@example.com with your completed application and pay the fee online.
If your application is unsuccessful, you may appeal to a magistrates' court within 21 days of the decision.
