Temporary Event Notice (TEN) summary
Temporary Event Notices (TENs) May be submitted to in order to permit the following licensable activities on a temporary basis, whether they be within a premises or outside in open space:
- Regulated entertainment - plays, films, recorded music, indoor sporting events, live music, boxing or wrestling entertainment, performance of dance
- Late night refreshment - provision of hot food and/or hot drinks between 11pm and 5am
- Sale by retail of alcohol
- Supply of alcohol by or on behalf of a club to a member or to the order of a member.
Standard Temporary Event Notices are those notices which are served at least 10 working days before the event and Late Temporary Event Notices have been introduced in order for event organisers to serve less notice than standard TENs by providing between 5 and 9 working days notice.
Premises users must be over the age of 18 and the maximum number of TENs that you can apply for per calendar year is 5 Standard TENs of which 2 may be Late TENs, unless you are a Personal Licence holder where the maximum number of Standard TENs is 50 of which 10 may be Late TENs. TENs must not involve more that 499 people at any one time and last no more than 168 hours. There should also be at least 24 hours between notice periods.
There are also restrictions on the number of TENs per premises. There can be only a maximum of 12 TENs a year for any particular premises, subject to an overall limit of no more than 21 days in total. Please note that part of a day equates to a full day when calculating total number of days. There must be at least a 24 hour gap between TENs, in other words TENs cannot be operated back to back.
You are advised that by serving a late TEN you run the risk that your event may not be able to take place. Should the licensing authority receive an objection notice to a late TEN from Warwickshire Police or Warwick District Council's Environmental Health Officers, they are required to serve a counter notice stating that the event will not be permitted to proceed.
