Please use the following online application form to apply for a Temporary Event Notice (TEN) and pay your fee:
|Temporary Event Notice Online Application Form|
If you have problems typing into the TEN form once you have downloaded it, please see the following guidance from Gov.uk:
"Customers should open the Adobe Reader application first (from the Start menu on Windows, or from the Applications folder on Mac) and use the File > Open menu to open the PDF on their computer.
If customers see the 'Please wait...' message, it means that they're using their web browser or another PDF viewer to open the PDF, which won't allow them to fill it in."
Your application form must be accompanied by the required fee.
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. Last submission dates for 2019
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 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.
