For Exclusive events, unless indicated on the booking form that there are Minimum Numbers, all bookings are accepted by Eventa strictly on the understanding that no decrease or allowance will be made if less persons than stated on the booking form actually attend the event and full payment for the numbers stated on the booking form will be due. Where Minimum Numbers are indicated on the booking form you will not be charged for decreases in numbers up to the Minimum Numbers but will be charged in full, based on such Minimum Numbers, regardless of whether final numbers actually attending drop below such Minimum Numbers level.
If you request that more people are added after the booking is accepted by us, this will be strictly subject to our agreement and, if agreed, to additional payments being made.
For Exclusive bookings final numbers are due 3 weeks prior to the event date.
Please note that although every effort is made to deliver any advertised programme, menu or itinerary, we and our suppliers reserve the right to make minor changes where for example unintentional errors or omissions have been made or due to circumstances outside our reasonable control equipment, third party suppliers or produce are unavailable.
If menu choices and/or dietary requirements are not submitted by the required date then Eventa will select on your behalf and will assume that there are no dietary requirements. Neither we nor any of our suppliers are able to guarantee that menu items are completely nut free.

5. Third Parties
Where we are asked by you to make arrangements with third parties for the provision of additional services or facilities not otherwise detailed on the booking form as services that we will provide, we will, unless otherwise agreed, do so as your agent and on your behalf. Such additional services or arrangements may, purely by way of example, be ticketing or other security arrangements or the provision of entertainment not otherwise included in the services that we have agreed to supply direct to you in accordance with the relevant booking form. In such circumstances any contract will be a contract between you and the relevant supplier and will be subject to their terms and conditions. You will be solely responsible for paying such third party supplier and will indemnify us against any losses that we may suffer as a result of such non-payment.
If a third party fails for any reason to provide the additional facilities or services that we have booked as your agent on your behalf, we shall have no liability to you and you must take the matter up with the relevant third party supplier.

6. General Behaviour and Age Restrictions
Despite our suppliers being aware of the nature of our events, you and your guests are expected to respect the venue, its staff and other people around you.
All suppliers and venue operators shall have the right to terminate, without notice, your event or activity and/or require individuals to leave where there is any actual or perceived threat of vandalism, violence or any other behaviour deemed inappropriate by them (including unacceptable inebriation or the use of drugs). In such cases you will not have any entitlement to a refund of any kind whatsoever. You are responsible for the behaviour of persons in your group and to the extent that the law permits we accept no liability for any accident or misadventure that occurs whilst any of your group is under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
In respect of certain events the relevant supplier can refuse entry or require an individual to leave the event where, in the supplier’s opinion, the individual is considered medically unfit to undertake the activity in question. In such circumstances no refund or other compensation shall be payable.
Venue operators are entitled to refuse entry to an event where in the relevant operator’s opinion the individual is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In such circumstances no refund or other compensation shall be payable.
If guests arrive late to their event or the timetable for the event is delayed as a result of the actions of you or your guests, Eventa cannot be held responsible for any services not provided as a result of any such delays.
Unless otherwise agreed specifically in writing, guests are not permitted to bring in their own alcohol or food. We or venue operators reserve the right to require anyone breaching this condition to leave the event along with the rest of their party.
Guests must vacate the relevant venue immediately following the conclusion of the relevant event.
Only the number of persons for whom you have paid are entitled to attend the event and we or the relevant venue operator shall be entitled to refuse entry to any person seeking to attend the event where the number of persons for whom the booking has been made has been reached. Unless we are to be responsible for ticketing and security arrangement, neither we nor our suppliers are under any obligation to check that relevant attendees have been invited by you and paid for.
Unless you advise us to the contrary we will assume that every member of your party is over the age of 21 years. If any member of your party is under the age of 21 years on the date of the event we or the relevant venue operator have the right to refuse entry.

If Eventa changes or cancels an event that has been booked, unless you choose an alternative event, any monies paid by you will be returned in full. However if an alternative event is booked at a different price to that cancelled then an appropriate refund or further payment will be made as applicable.
In the event of you cancelling a booked event for whatever reason, you must do so in writing at least 84 days prior to the event in respect of an Exclusive event. In cancelling any booking within these time limits you will forfeit the deposit which, if not already paid shall become immediately payable.
If you wish to cancel less than 84 days prior to the event in respect of an Exclusive event then all sums paid to the date of cancellation shall be retained by us and all further monies then due pursuant to these terms and conditions shall, to the extent that they have not already been paid, immediately become payable.

- (b) a third party unconnected with the provision of the arrangements and where the failure is unforeseeable or unavoidable; or
- (c) unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised; or an event which we or our suppliers, even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall.
