2.If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product (or we will refund any moneys already paid). This might be because of limited availability, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
3.Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

2. Passes may be sold subject to certain restrictions on entry or use, such as restricted, obstructed or side view or a minimum age for entry.

See also Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013).
1.PRICE AND PAYMENT
1.Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see Clause 12.4 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
2.Additional Charges. We may include an administration fee within our bookings and if so you will be informed before you receive your confirmation email.
3.We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
4.What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you (if applicable).
5.When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with all major credit and debit cards. Unless specified on the website, we take full advance payment when you make your booking. Certain products (shown on the website) can be split into deposit and final balance. The deposit is payable when you make your booking and you will be informed when the final balance is due.
6.We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 2% a year above the base lending rate of Barclays Bank from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
7.What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
1.OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU
1.We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us only. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process. Unless otherwise stated, our liability to you in connection with the event (including but not limited to, for any cancellation, rescheduling or material change to the programme of the event) shall be limited to the price paid by you for the product or service. We shall have no liability for any damage to your property and that of any other pass holder in the event that any services are carried out at a location of your choosing.
2.We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products as summarised at Clause 11.3 and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987. We remind you that we are a booking agent. For the avoidance of doubt, we do not operate in nor have any employees in any of the venues and / or we have not made any investigations in respect of any of the organisations or venues that we provide bookings for and you should make your own enquiries in this regard.
3.We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products or services for domestic and private use. If you use the products or services for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
1.HOW WE MAY USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
1.How we will use your personal information. We will use the personal information you provide to us:
1.to supply the products to you;
2.to process your payment for the products; and
3.if you agreed to this during the order process, to give you information about similar products that we provide, but you may stop receiving this at any time by contacting us.
2.For the avoidance of doubt, we will release your personal data to such third parties as is necessary to enable us to supply the products to you (including but not limited to a Venue or Event Manager). This normally consists of no more than your name, contact telephone number and email address.
3.Save as mentioned in these Terms and Conditions, we will only give your personal information to other third parties where the law either requires or allows us to do so.
1.SPECIAL BOOKING REQUIREMENTS, ADMISSION AND IDENTIFICATION
1.We operate a unique policy; endorsed by The Licensed trades & local Police. We may often ask for I.D in advance (details below) to ensure that large groups are admitted to venues that may normally not welcome large single sex parties.
2.We will normally request, at our discretion, that all male groups (or a mixed group with a male contingent larger than six persons) send us one form of photo I.D. per six males in that group. This information is never passed on to any other agent or Company whatsoever. The information is destroyed within three months and will only be passed to the Police, if requested. We take this I.D. to both ensure the venues are aware, to some extent, who is in their building as part of a large group, and we also offer recourse in the event of any disturbance, conflict or any issue in general that may take place within a licensed premises.
3.These measures go some way to ensuring responsible drinking levels, customer safety and also provide a responsible face to the Night Time Economy. Our methods have proved particularly successful with venues that would not normally accept large all male groups. Please also note that if you are booked into a licensed venue (e.g. Nightclub or Bar) or an event that includes alcohol, all members of your group will need to be over 18 years old & all members will need to bring valid I.D. with them. We do not accept any liability for any losses caused by your failure to ensure all persons are able to produce valid I.D.
4.When we book an activity or event for you (such as dance classes, life drawing classes and any other activity that is allocated a specific time), please ensure you allow, at least an extra hour on top of the set times for any further plans you may have. Occasionally, and due to unforeseeable reasons and circumstances beyond our control, an event may start later than expected. In such situations, you will receive the full length of any event but we do not accept any liability for such delays. For example, we do not accept any liability for any forward or past travel fee(s) or offer any refund (part or full) if you are unable to complete the event due to not allowing a reasonable amount of extra time for such unexpected uncertainties. Such issues are rare though.
5.Every effort to admit latecomers will be made at a suitable break in the event but admission cannot be guaranteed.
6.It is your responsibility to ascertain whether an event has been cancelled and the date and time of any rearranged event.
7.Please note that advertised start times of events are subject to change.
8.Special effects which may include, without limitation, sound, audio visual, pyrotechnic effects or lighting effects may be featured at an event. Prolonged exposure to noise may damage your hearing. You and other pass holders consent to filming and sound recording as members of the audience.
1.Licencee Ejection / Unreasonable behaviour
1.All Licensed premises reserve the right, (without refunding payment), to refuse admission or to eject, any person whose conduct the management deems unacceptable. This is at the management’s discretion and includes (but is not limited to) to any person who uses vulgar or abusive language, is considered to be aggressive or violent or in breach of the peace, has consumed too much alcohol, is banned under any exclusion scheme, is in possession of illegal substances, does not comply with regulations under the Licensing Act, or who fails to comply with any of the venues reasonable rules or requests (such as a search). Breach of standard entry terms may terminate your right to entry without refund.
1.OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
1.We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will contact you to let you know if we plan to do this. If you are unhappy with the transfer you may contact us to end the contract within seven days of us telling you about it and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for products not provided.
2.You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
3.Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
4.If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
5.Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
6.Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation are governed by and construed in accordance with English law. Each party irrevocably agrees that the Courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with this agreement or it subject matter of formation.
7.Alternative dispute resolution. Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to contact the alternative dispute resolution provider we use. You can submit a complaint to CEDR via their website at www.cedr.com . CEDR will not charge you for making a complaint and if you are not satisfied with the outcome you can still bring legal proceedings. In addition, please note that disputes may be submitted for online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform.
