COVID-19 Terms and Conditions
Terms and conditions apply to all tickets purchased for events during the period when rules and guidance from the UK Government regarding the COVID19 Pandemic are in force.
If an event does not occur due to the Government COVID-19 restrictions, your ticket will be refunded.
Personal arrangements including travel, accommodation or hospitality relating to the event for which you have booked tickets are at your own risk. Our liability to ticket holders in connection with the event shall be limited to the ticket price paid, including the per ticket booking fee.
Before attending an event, ticket holders must familiarise themselves with and comply with the latest rules and guidance issued by the UK government regarding COVID19.
By attending an event at a venue, all ticket holders are acknowledging their consent to, and agree to abide by, the safety precautions that the venue has adopted, which may include (but not be limited to) wearing of face coverings and non-invasive temperature checks.
Safety measures for each event and venue are posted on our website; ticket holder requirements will be outlined in the pre-visit email notifications. Failure to comply with any such precautions could result in ticket holders being asked to leave the venue. We further reserve the right to refuse entry to anyone who refuses to comply with our safety protocols.
The safety measures that are being and have been introduced at venues are intended to minimise the risk of contracting COVID-19, but this risk cannot be eradicated entirely. By purchasing a ticket for an event, you are acknowledging that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present and that you and those in your party voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and agree not to hold Nia Phoenix, CURLYTREATS, the venue, our event partners or any of their affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors or volunteers liable for any illness or injury. Anyone attending an event acknowledges that they do so at their own risk.
In line with Government guidance, we ask that ticket holders do not attend if they or someone in their party is required to self-isolate or experience any COVID-19 symptoms. To ensure all event participants can book with confidence, we have instituted a temporary COVID19 exchange policy.
In these circumstances, event tickets will permit you to (i) exchange your tickets for another event of the same value at a later date (within 12 months from the purchase date).
If you cannot attend an event, you must inform us at least 24 hours before the event. No exchange fee will apply.
All ticket holders may be required to have their temperature checked before entering the venue. Entry to the venue will not be permitted if you display a temperature of 38 degrees or higher.
Suppose a ticket holder or member of the party is denied entry due to a failed temperature check. In that case, the lead booker will be issued with a credit voucher which can be used to re-book to an alternative date for their visit (subject to availability).
