1. What is a temporary event notice

Temporary event notices (TENs) are for temporary events involving activities which would normally have to be licensed under the Licensing Act 2003.  TENs allow an event organiser to notify us, the police and our environmental health service of small scale events that involve licensable activities which need to be authorised. 

These events can be held at a premises where there is already a premises licence or club premises certificate or they can be used to licence an unlicensed premises.
