Please read our guidance about temporary event notices and environmental health's guidance and advice for applicants for temporary event notices before completing your application.

How to apply

You can serve your temporary event notice online.

You'll need to give:

  • your details
  • the address of the premises or if it has no address a detailed description including the ordnance survey references
  • the licensable activities you want to provide at the event and the date and times when you'll be providing them
  • a maximum number of people that will be at the event

Please read our frequently asked questions about temporary event notices before you fill in the form as this will help you avoid common mistakes that may result in your notice being rejected.

If you are not able to apply online, you will need to serve us with a paper copy of your temporary event notice (TEN) and you can email us to request a blank copy of the form. If you are serving your TEN in paper form, it is your responsibility to also serve a copy on each of the relevant responsible authorities for TENs being the Police and our Environmental Health service. You will also need to make a payment to ourselves. When we receive your notice and payment we will contact you by email to confirm whether it meets the requirements and has been accepted


You'll be charged a fee. Please make sure you are aware of how much this will cost.
