If you want to carry out a 'licensable activity' on unlicenced premises your will need to apply for a Temporary Events Notice (TEN). The process of applying is formally known as 'serving' a Temporary Events Notice.
Licensable activities include:
- selling alcohol
- serving alcohol to members of a private club
- providing entertainment, such as music, dancing or indoor sporting events
- serving hot food or drink between 11pm and 5am
You will also need a TEN if a particular licensable activity is not included in the terms of your existing licence, for example holding a wedding reception at a community centre.
You can only apply for a TEN as an individual, not an organisation.
You must be at least 18 to apply for a TEN
