Any elements of a Package on the same order which we have not confirmed with the Order Confirmation Number, which we do not confirm during the booking process or in relation to which we do not debit your credit/debit card or are not set out on any invoice issued to you do not form part of our agreement with you and will not be supplied.

3.5 If the delivery address provided by you at the time of booking is located OUTSIDE THE UK, the Tickets and/or Merchandise (as applicable) which comprise the Package will NOT be posted to you in advance of the Event taking place.

Accordingly, we cannot accept liability for any descriptions given by the owner or operator of the Accommodation or Travel company.
6.2 The Travel included in the Package, if any (and unless stated otherwise), comprises transport to and from the Venue from the Accommodation or such location specified in the Package on the day or night of the Event only.

A refund will not be given to anyone for all or any part of the Package in these circumstances.

9 ALTERATION TO ADVERTISED PACKAGES
Every reasonable effort will be made to provide the Packages as advertised or confirmed.

10 EVENT CANCELLATIONS / POSTPONEMENTS
10.1 If an Event is cancelled or postponed, we will use our reasonable endeavours to notify you of the cancellation or postponement using the details you provided at the time of booking. Please note that we cannot guarantee that you will be informed of such cancellation before the date of the Event and it is your responsibility to ascertain whether an Event has been cancelled or rescheduled and the date and time of any rescheduled Event.
10.2 If an Event is rescheduled or postponed, we will where possible use our reasonable endeavours to offer you tickets to the rescheduled Event (together with the associated Travel, Accommodation and Hospitality), equivalent to the value of the Ticket, Hospitality, Accommodation and Travel forming part of the original Package. If the Event is cancelled, if we are unable to provide you with tickets to the rescheduled Event or if you are unable to attend the rescheduled Event, or if there is a material change to the Event (being a change which we, acting reasonably, determine makes the Event materially different to the Event that purchasers of a Package, taken generally, could reasonably expect), you will be entitled to a refund of the elements of the Package not provided to you. Any elements of the Package that have been provided to you are non-refundable.
We reserve the right to cancel or withdraw any part of any Package at any time, whether or not an Event is cancelled or postponed. If we elect to cancel or withdraw any element of the Package we will contact you using the details provided when you booked the Package. We will at our option offer to either:
- refund the Price paid by you in full if no part of a Package is provided; or
- refund the price for those elements of the Package cancelled or withdrawn, as determined by us at our sole discretion; or
- offer the Package to you for a different date.
If you are not able to attend any rescheduled date we will offer you a full or partial refund as set out above in clause 10.2.
11 LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
11.1 We shall not be liable to you for death, personal injury to you or loss or damage caused to your personal property unless it is caused by our negligent act or omission or our breach of statutory duty.
11.2 You acknowledge that we do not control the activities of the artist(s) who appear at an Event and accordingly we cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage of any kind, resulting from any delay in or overrun of an artist’s performance at any Event.
11.3 We will not be liable to you for any failure to perform our obligations under these Terms and Conditions where such failure is caused by an event beyond our control.

In accordance with this, please note that:
a) personal arrangements including travel, accommodation, hospitality and other costs and expenses incurred by you relating to the Package and/or Event which have been arranged by you are at your own risk, and we shall not be responsible or liable to you for any wasted expenditure, including where an Event has been cancelled, rescheduled or otherwise materially altered; and
b) we shall not be responsible or liable to you for any loss of enjoyment or amenity, including where an Event has been cancelled, rescheduled or materially altered.
11.5 Except as otherwise set out in these Terms and Conditions and any other applicable terms and conditions and, unless caused by an error or fault on our part, we will not be liable to you, anyone accompanying you or any Package holders for any unavailability, delay or non-delivery of Tickets or any element of any Package or any other acts or omissions that are beyond our reasonable control.
11.6 Subject to Clause 11.1, in any event, our maximum liability to you (or anyone accompanying you or the holder of any Package purchased by you) under these Terms and Conditions is to refund to you the Price paid by you for the Package.

12.3 If any element of the Package, including a Ticket, is transferred in breach of these Terms and Conditions (e.g. by doing so for profit and/or by not using an approved official resale channel), the holder of such Ticket may be refused entry to, or be ejected from, the Venue and the holder of such Ticket will be required to deliver up the Ticket on demand.

13.4 We reserve the right to eject those disturbing the peace, at our sole discretion, without readmission or refund.

You also agree that you will not (and will not permit or encourage any of your guests to) engage in any activity on any media whatsoever (including social media), which, whether intentionally or otherwise, may give the impression that you or any of your guests are in any way connected with the Event or any artist performing at the Event.

14.1 If any of these Terms and Conditions are deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition will be deemed deleted provided that: the deletion of that term will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition(s); if the commercial purpose of these terms is materially affected, we and you will agree alternative terms and conditions without such invalid and/or void conditions.
14.2 No variation to these Terms and Conditions or any agreement between us which you make or purport to make will be valid and effective unless it has been acknowledged and agreed in writing by us.
