Temporary Event Notice
If you're organising a temporary event and want to serve or sell alcohol, provide late night refreshment, or put on regulated entertainment, you'll need to complete a Temporary Event Notice (TEN).
The licence is required at least 10 working days before an event. You can find out all about the Temporary Event Notice and how to apply here.
