How We Approach Your Notice

  1. Discuss the TEN with the client – We discuss the details of the temporary event notice application and use all our experience and knowledge to advise our clients of all their options; final recommendations are based on these discussion.
  2. Submit the temporary event notice – We complete the TEN application forms and submit the fees. The completed temporary event notice is then forwarded to the relevant responsible authorities.
  3. Check the TEN – Successful temporary event notices are checked by one of our licensing consultants and sent on to the client within 24 hours of being received by us.

Representations & Licensing Committee Hearings

If representations (objections against your temporary events notice) are received we can provide follow-up services.

  1. Review any representation received – We will review any representations received and advise on a strategy going forward.
  2. Hold discussions to resolve representations – We will lead negotiations on behalf of the client to discuss any representations received, with a view to delivering solutions which will allow representations to be withdrawn.
  3. Representation for licensing committee hearings – When it has not been possible to resolve objections through a consensus approach, we can provide representation for the client at the subsequent licensing committee hearing.


Our fees for this service are transparent; where temporary event notice applications are more complex, some of the costs will be variable.

  • TEN Local Authority application fee – £21.00. We pay this fee on our client’s behalf and charge it back at cost.

Temporary Event Notice (TEN)

A temporary event notice (often referred to as a TEN) should be given at least 10 clear working days before the date of the proposed event and covers the licensable activities of:

  • The Sale of Alcohol
  • Regulated Entertainment
  • Late Night Refreshment - sale of hot food or drink between 23.00 and 05.00.

Late TEN3 - In some cases where a commercial opportunity is received at short notice, a ‘Late Temporary Event Notice / Late TEN’ can be made giving just 5 clear working days notice.

A temporary event notice can be used by clients to offer their customers licensable activities for which there is either no premises licence in place or where an existing premises licence does not cover the times or activities sought.

Temporary Event Notices are subject to a set of limitations:

  • Max. number of TEN’s per premises, per year - 12
  • Max. number of days covered by a TEN per premises, per year - 21
  • Max. number of people permitted at a TEN at any one time – 499
  • Max. duration of a TEN – 168 hours
  • Max. number of TEN’s which can be applied for by a Personal Licence Holder per year – 50 (Max. 5 Late TENs)
  • Max. number of TEN’s which can be applied for by a non-personal licence holder per year – 5 (max. 2 Late TENs)
  • ‘A year’ runs from 1st January – 31st December
  • ‘A day’ runs from midnight to midnight.

Our licensing consultants provide clients with guidance on the best way to maximise their access to temporary event notices.

3Please note; if a ‘Late TEN’ receives any representation (objections) from the police or environmental health, the applicant has no recourse to appeal and a counter notice will be issued against the temporary event notice applied for; preventing the event from taking place.
