Event Terms & Conditions

  1. Introduction   

1.1 These Booking Terms shall govern and form the contract (the “Contract”) for any online or other booking(s) made by you in relation to any conference, webinar, event or training course (“Event”) organised by UK Theatre Association, company number 323204 and VAT number 242 2801 94 and Society of London Theatre registered in England and Wales (company number: 00527227) (“SOLT”) whose registered offices are at 32 Rose Street, London, WC2E 9ET, “our”, “we” or “us”) (collectively “Bookings”). By clicking on the ‘I Accept’ button you agree to be legally bound by these Booking Terms (as they may be modified and posted on our website from time to time). 

1.2 These Booking Terms together with TheatreMeansBusiness’ Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, Cookies Usage Policy and payment method instructions, if any, are the whole Contract between you and UK Theatre and prevail over and supersede any other terms or conditions contained or referred to elsewhere (whether in correspondence, brochures or catalogues or otherwise) or implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing unless specifically agreed to in writing by an authorised representative of UK Theatre. Any purported provisions to the contrary are hereby excluded or extinguished. You acknowledge that you have not entered into this Contract in reliance upon any statement, warranty or representation made by UK Theatre or any other person and you irrevocably and unconditionally waive any rights to claim damages and/or to rescind these Booking Terms by reason of any misrepresentation (other than a fraudulent misrepresentation) that is not contained in the Booking Terms, Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, Cookies Policy and payment method instructions. 

1.3 Please note that you must be aged 18 or over to make a Booking and enter into a Contract with us and you must be resident in the UK or Republic of Ireland. We reserve the right to seek confirmation of age if we consider it necessary and you agree to provide such proof of identity and age as we consider reasonably necessary from time to time. 

1.4 Event information is correct at the time of going to press but is subject to change.  For the latest information, please visit the relevant page via our homepage page at TheatreMeansBusiness.info

  1. Making a Booking 

2.1 To make a Booking you will need to follow the booking procedures set out on our website which may involve completing a Booking registration form. Details of the price payable in respect of a Booking and the procedures for payment are displayed at point of booking. Bookings may be subject to a booking fee charge and/or a non-refundable handling charge. 

2.2 We are entitled to refuse or cancel any Booking made by you for any reason at our entire discretion. Please note that places on all Events are allocated on a first come, first served basis.

2.3 If your Booking is accepted, we will confirm acceptance to you by online electronic means (“Confirmation”) to the email address you have given us on the Booking registration form. The Booking will then be confirmed by the date set out in the Confirmation or, if the Confirmation does not contain such a date, within seven (7) days. It is your responsibility to check your Confirmation and to inform us of any errors. 

2.4 We aim to dispatch such tickets to you in respect of your Booking as soon as possible although we are not able to be specific with exact time of dispatch. If your tickets have not arrived two (2) days of booking the Event please contact us

2.6 You must pay the Event price in full by credit or debit card at the time of making the Booking. The price in respect of a particular Event is the price in force at the date and time of making your Booking and may vary. We may change the price of the Booking at any time before you make a Booking in respect of that Event. We try to ensure that our prices displayed on our website are accurate. The price in respect of each Event is exclusive of postage and applicable taxes. 

2.7 You undertake that all details you provide to us for the purpose of making the Booking will be correct, that the credit or debit card, or any electronic cash, which you use is your own (or that you are authorised to use) and that there are sufficient funds or credit facilities to cover the cost of making the Booking. We reserve the right to obtain validation of your credit or debit card details before providing you with the Confirmation. 

2.8 When making a booking you may be limited to booking a maximum number of places for each Event. This amount is included on the first purchase page and is verified with every transaction. 

2.9 You represent and warrant that the Booking is made for personal use only, and that any Booking made by you will not be resold or offered for resale by you or anyone else whether at a premium or otherwise. Resale or attempted resale of any Booking made by you, or any other breach of these Booking Terms shall entitle UK Theatre to cancel the Booking without refund or other compensation. 

  1. Cancellation of an Event

Cancellation by UK Theatre or our affiliates

3.1 Whilst we will make every effort possible to run all Events, both we and our affiliates reserve the right to cancel, postpone or relocate an Event at our/their entire discretion.  We and our affiliates also reserve the right to refuse or cancel your individual attendance at an Event at any time.

3.2 In the event of the cancellation, postponement or relocation of an Event or a Booking by us, we will notify you of such cancellation, postponement or relocation via the telephone number, email address and/or postal address provided to us during the Booking process and will inform you of the date, time and location of any rearranged Event (if applicable) and/or how to claim a refund (if you are eligible). 

3.3 Unless indicated otherwise by us or our affiliates, if an Event is cancelled, postponed or relocated, you will be offered (subject to availability) to attend a rescheduled Event, the same Event at an alternative location or another Event up to the face value of the Booking price or, if you are unable to attend any of the former, a refund. UK Theatre and our affiliates will not be liable for any loss, claim, damage, or any incidental or consequential damages of any kind, whether based in contract, tort or otherwise, which arises out of or is in any way connected with an Event or Booking cancellation, postponement, relocation or other change. Without limiting the previous provision, travel expenses will not be reimbursed by UK Theatre. 

3.4 Subject to clauses 3.1, 3.2 and 3.3 above, in respect of Bookings made prior to the date of the Event, you shall be entitled to a refund up to the face value of the Booking price plus the relevant booking fee. If an Event takes place over several days and only part of the Event is cancelled or postponed, you will be entitled to a partial refund only corresponding to the day(s) cancelled or postponed. In order to claim your refund, please apply in writing to events@soltukt.co.uk within fourteen (14) days from the date of cancellation or postponement of the Event enclosing your Booking Confirmation. 

Cancellation by you

3.5 Cancellation by you will only be valid if communicated to UK Theatre in writing by email to events@soltukt.co.uk

3.6 Subject to the provisions of paragraph 3.7 below, if agreed in advance in writing by UK Theatre, you shall be entitled to transfer your Booking to another individual if they are eligible to receive the same rate as you.  Your written notice of such proposed transfer must include the name of the individual and the organisation to which they belong (if any). For the avoidance of doubt, the transferee shall be subject to these Booking Terms. We cannot guarantee that the transferee’s details will be included in any Event literature (e.g. event registration). 

3.7 Cancellation policy for webinars:   

  • Where seven working days’ notice or more is given before the Event start date, a full refund, where you have paid for a place, will be given to you.
  • Where less than seven working days’ notice is provided before the Event start date, full fees will be due. No refund will be issued.
