Temporary events notice (TEN) dates for public holidays and special events

Here’s a list of dates you’ll need when planning events that aren’t covered by a premises licence

If you are planning an event and need a temporary events notice, this page could prove invaluable to you.

Why? Because if you’ve ever been involved with licensing laws, you know what might appear as small technicalities can have big consequences. This is certainly true when obtaining a temporary events notice to run an event; because if you miss the standard deadline, your event cannot go ahead if someone objects. And complaints have been rising recently, particularly over noise worries.

So to help, below you’ll find a list of all public holidays and some special events with the relevant deadlines all worked out for you. So all you need do is choose your date, apply to your local licensing authority, and you’re off.

Of course, if you’d rather one of our licensing solicitors manage this process for you, just drop us a line and we’ll take care of it.  This is really helpful if you are running an event not listed below, as working out temporary events dates and making the application can be a little tricky.

And if you’d like to hear all about TENs, you can listen to this podcast with specialist alcohol licensing solicitor Suraj Desor.
