How to apply

To apply for a TEN you will need to complete the online application form. There is a fee of £21.

CAUTION - if you are not experienced in the submission of licence applications, you may wish to consider contacting a licensing solicitor or licensing agent to carry out this work on your behalf. If applications are submitted incorrectly or are not of the required standard, they may be rejected and you will lose your fee.  Please note that the licensing authority are only able to provide basic guidance, which is published on our web pages.

Please ensure that you check your application and supporting documents before you submit it, as no refunds will be issued for incorrect submissions.


A single premises can have up to 20 TENs per year, as long as the total length of all events isn't more than 26 days.

You can get:

  • 5 TENs (2 of which can be late TENs) per year
  • 50 TENs (10 of which can be late TENs) if you hold a personal licence

There must be at least a 24 hour gap between each different event with a TEN on the same premises.
