Safe events – noise issues
If an event is going to create noise, through the playing of live or recorded music, or the operation of a Public Address (PA) system, there are particular things to think about.
Particular permissions may be needed.
Your event may need to be covered by a ‘Temporary Events Notice’ or TEN.
Licensable activity includes selling alcohol, serving alcohol to members of a private club, providing entertainment, e.g. music, dancing or indoor sporting events, or serving hot food between 11pm and 5am. Even if the event is on licensed premises, you may need to apply for a TEN if the event isn’t covered by your normal licence.
For more information on applying for a TEN in Burnley, and to download the forms, go to www.burnley.gov.uk/business/licensing/alcohol-entertainment-and-food/temporary-event-notices
You will need to complete the Events Information Questionnaire. Download this here, or 'save as' your own document to your own computer, and when completed click 'submit' to send it to us as an email attachment at firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s great when event organisers who have put everything in place properly communicate with residents who may be affected by their event.
