Supporting Documentation

Your application form must be accompanied by the required fee.

Further Requirements

You will also need to:

  • apply at least 10 clear working days before your event.  Clear working days do not include the day we receive your application or the day of the event.

  • send a copy of the application form to the Police and Environmental Protection at least 10 working days before the event if you choose to submit a hard copy application.  If you apply online, we will notify the Police and Environmental Protection on your behalf.

  • be at least 18 years old.

Your event must:

  • have fewer than 500 people at all times – including staff running the event
  • last no more than 168 hours (7 days)

You can only apply for a TEN as an individual, not an organisation.

The latest you can apply for a ‘Late TEN’ is 5 clear working days (not including the date of submission or the date of the event) before the event (but not earlier than 9 clear working days).  If you don’t hold a personal licence, you can serve up to 2 late TENs per year.  If you hold a personal licence, the limit is 10.  Late TENs count towards the total number of permitted TENs.
