Temporary event notice

For 2022 and 2023, the number of temporary event notices that a premises user can give will increase from 15 to 20 per calendar year. The maximum number of days a temporary event may be held at a premises will increase from 21 to 26 days per calendar year.

A single premise can have up to 20 TENs applied for in one year, as long as the total length of the events is not more than 26 days, for events taking place in 2022 and 2023 only. You should apply for a Temporary Event Notice in the same way, this has not changed.

To hold a one-off event, you need to supply a temporary event notice to us at least ten working days before the planned event. We will then consult with the police and Environmental Health.

The notice should tell us:

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.
