Temporary Event Notices

If you wish to sell or supply alcohol, provide regulated entertainment or late night refreshment but don't hold a premises licence or club premises certificate, you need to apply for temporary permission. These are called Temporary Event Notices (TEN) and you can find out more at GOV.UK.

1. How to apply

Apply online

Notices must be received at least 10 working days before the event. Each notice costs £21.

To request a copy of a postal application form, please email the Licensing Service at licensing@westminster.gov.uk stating the application form that is required. Please note that the council has established a cheque payment surcharge for all Type 3 and some Type 2 licensing regime fees. For further information on these licence types, please view the fees list and the following link: View Fees List.

2. What happens next

When we receive your notice, we’ll send you an acknowledgement the next working day.

If you apply online, the Police and the Environmental Health Department will be automatically informed on your behalf within one working day.
