Temporary event notice

Find out about temporary event notices in your area.

Please be aware that there are strict rules on giving notice for a temporary event notice. You can find a list of upcoming popular events and their temporary event notice deadlines.

Standard temporary event notice

A standard temporary event notice must be received by the licensing authority at least ten working days before the event. Ten working days excludes the day the notice is received and the first day of the event.

Late temporary event notice

If there are fewer than ten working days before the event, you need to apply for a late temporary event notice.

The latest you can apply for a late temporary event notice is five clear working days before your event, but no earlier than nine clear working days before the event. Clear working days do not include the day your council receives your application or the day of the event.

Temporary event notice limits

There is a limit of ten late temporary event notices per year for an individual holding a personal licence and two for those who do not. Late temporary event notices count towards the total number of permitted temporary event notices.

Unsuccessful applications

If an authority vetoes a late temporary event notice because of police or environment health objections, there is no right to a hearing or appeal. The application is simply refused and it is not possible to add conditions to a late TEN.
