Under certain circumstances it becomes a Legal Requirement that the 'Hirer' has to secure a 'Temporary Events Notice' (TEN) from the local Council.
1. if you wish to sell alcohol
2. if you are charging for entry to a dance with live music
3. paying for musicians to play etc.
The Management Committee of the Grove Building DOES NOT hold a Premises or Entertainment licence.
EVERYONE making a booking has a duty to familiarise themselves with these regulations and has a legal responsibility to secure such a licence.
You should NOT apply for a TEN unless this has first
been approved by the Chairman or the Booking Secretary.
We provide 2 helpful documents in this regard and you can access them here:
You can also go straight to the Council website to download a blank TENs form
(Committee Members have a legal duty to ensure that all users comply in this regard and have the powers to act where a TEN is required and has not been obtained).
If you do not wish to do your own catering then we do have a list of people/organisations willing to help.
Please just get in touch for the contact info.
