Temporary events

A temporary event notice, under the Licensing Act 2003, can be used to provide licensable activities. These are held on a temporary basis, or to temporarily extend the hours of existing licences.

You must be 18 or older to give a temporary event notice. A temporary event notice can be for any premises, including open spaces.

Normally, temporary events notices must be served with at least 10 clear working days' notice. A 'late' notice is one given with five to nine clear working days' notice.

There is a consultation period of three working days with the police and Environmental Health. 

Any objection to a normal notice will need a public hearing to decide if the notice can be given. Objections to a 'late' temporary events notice mean it is refused.

How much does a temporary event notice cost?

The notice for a temporary event costs £21.00
