Status of these Terms and Conditions
1. All Passes are sold subject to these Terms and Conditions. Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully prior to purchase and raise any queries with the Promoter prior to purchase. Purchase of any Pass constitutes acceptance of these Terms and Conditions on Your behalf and on behalf of any person for whom You are purchasing Passes.
2. These terms and conditions are subject to change from time to time without notice and in our sole discretion. We will notify You of amendments to these terms and conditions by posting them to this website.
Passes, Times, Stage Session Entry, Refunds and Cancellation
3. Only delegates holding a valid Pass will be admitted to the Event. There are a limited number of Passes (and different types of Passes) available for the Event, and therefore purchase of Passes is strictly subject to availability.
4. You must retain this Pass on Your person at all times during the Event.
5. Your Pass may be invalidated if any part of it is removed, altered or defaced.
6. Upon purchase, please check Passes carefully as mistakes cannot always be rectified after purchase.
7. Passes are not issued on a sale or return basis and refunds will not be made on returned Passes unless provided for under these Terms and Conditions.
8. The Organiser will not be responsible for any Pass that is lost, stolen or destroyed. You are solely responsible for the safe-keeping of Your Pass. It is not always possible to issue duplicate Passes. If duplicates are issued, a reasonable administration fee may be charged.
9. Price and availability information is subject to change without notice.
10. Passes are barcoded and each barcode is unique and only allows one entry to the Event. Each ticket will be coded to ensure the relevant number of permitted entries only. Your Pass will also be exchanged on arrival at the Event with a unique badge and lanyard for identification.
11. Ownership or possession of a Pass does not confer any rights (by implication or otherwise) on You to use, alter, copy, or otherwise deal with any of the symbols, trademarks, logos and/or intellectual property appearing on the Pass.
12. Passes are personal revocable licences and shall at all times remain the property of the Promoter and subject to these Terms and Conditions. You may not re-sell or transfer a Pass for commercial gain. If a Pass is re-sold, transferred or advertised for profit or commercial gain or used for competitions, promotions or hospitality packages by anyone other than the Promoter, or an authorised sub-agent, it will be void and You will be refused entry to, or ejected from, the Venue without refund.
13. Passes are sold subject to the Promoter's right to alter or vary the published Event programme which may result in changes to the performance line-up, playing times or any other aspect of the Event. The Promoter reserves all rights in this regard. Any published start and finish times of a performance at the Event are estimates only and are subject to change. The Promoter shall not be liable for any change of a published start or finish time.
14. All advertised times are approximate and subject to change. It is Your responsibility to make appropriate arrangements to ensure that You arrive at the Venue in sufficient time in case the Event or stage session starts early or otherwise, and to ensure that You are able to stay until the close of the Event or performance should You wish to if it overruns. We will not be responsible to make any refund or meet the costs of any alternative travel arrangements or for any loss of enjoyment or other indirect loss as a result of an Event not running to the precise advertised times.
15. All Event stage session seats are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis and entry is not guaranteed. It is Your responsibility to make appropriate arrangements to ensure that You arrive at the specific stage area in sufficient time to queue for entry.
16. Passes cannot be exchanged or refunded unless the Event is cancelled, rescheduled or there has been a material change of the Event. A ‘material’ change is a change which, in our reasonable opinion, makes the Event materially different to the Event that purchasers of the Pass, taken generally, could reasonably expect. Changes to stage sessions times, featured talent shall not be considered a material alteration. A material alteration is judged, in our absolute discretion, by reference to the nature and billing of each Event. The Event is judged, in our absolute discretion, by reference to the overall theme rather than the individual talent scheduled to appear.
17. With regard to Covid-19, the Show will take place to the extent it is being promoted in the lead up to the event. With the development of the first two vaccines as well as the roll-out of government trials for mass testing and tracing, We are confident that a full capacity event can be achieved and that the programme will go ahead as is communicated. However, should future Covid-19 variants change the public health landscape, we reserve the right to change the format to meet any new government guidelines for a safe, socially distanced event.
18. If the Show is cancelled or postponed due to Covid-19 Your Pass is protected and will be automatically transferred to a date later in the year, or refunded should you not be able to attend.
19. Refunds should be obtained from the point of purchase, no later than 3 months after the Event.
20. Liability for the cancellation or rescheduling of an Event, or for material changes to an Event, will be limited to a refund as set out in these terms and conditions. The total refund for a Pass shall be the face value of the Pass purchased. Personal arrangements including travel, subsistence and accommodation in relation to the Event which have been arranged by You are made at Your own risk and neither the authorised ticket agent nor the Promoter will have any liability for any such loss of enjoyment or wasted expenditure in addition to refunding the face value of the Pass. Where the cancellation takes place part-way through an Event, You may only be entitled to a refund of part of the face price which You paid for the Pass.
21. No refunds or compensation will be considered for any reason other than as set out in clause 16.
22. Refunds will only be made to the person who purchased the Passes.

Customers are advised that the website cannot always be updated immediately and that circumstances giving rise to cancellation, postponement or Material alterations can sometimes arise immediately prior to an Event.
