Age restriction

You shall not purchase any services or products from our site if you are below the age of 18 years old because under this age, you do not have legal capacity to enter into a contract.

Acceptance of order

These Terms will become binding on you and us and a Contract will come into effect between you and us only upon our written acceptance of the order issued to you by email or when we contact you to tell you that we are able to provide the services or products to you. If there is any conflict between these Terms and any term of the order, the order will take priority.

Entire Agreement

These Terms and the Privacy Policy constitute the entire agreement between you and us and supersedes all previous agreements, promises, assurances, warranties, representations and understandings between us, whether written or oral, relating to its subject matter.

Provision of Services

We will supply the services to you on the date agreed between us in writing.

We will make every effort to complete the services on time. However, there may be delays due to an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 14 below for our responsibilities when an Event Outside Our Control happens.

We may have to suspend the services if we have to deal with technical problems, or to make improvements agreed between you and us in writing to the services. We will contact you to let you know in advance where this occurs, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. You do not have to pay for the services while they are suspended under this clause 8.4 but this does not affect your obligation to pay for any invoices we have already sent you.

If you do not pay us for the services when you are supposed to, we may suspend the services with immediate effect until you have paid us the outstanding amounts (except where you validly dispute an invoice). We will contact you to tell you this. This does not affect our right to charge you interest.

If there is a problem with the services

In the unlikely event that there is any defect with the services:

Before we begin to provide the services, you have the following rights to cancel our services:

All cancellations are subject to a 50% administration charge. Where cancellation occurs less than 28 days before the day of the event, or during the event, 100% of the booking fee will be applicable.

If  the Services are to begin within the cooling off period you acknowledge and agree to the following:

 If the Services are fully performed within the 14 calendar day cooling off period, you will lose your right to cancel after the Services are complete.

 If you cancel the Services after provision has begun but is not yet complete you will still be required to pay for the Services.

The cancellation charge will be deducted from any refund that is due to you or, if no refund is due to you, invoiced to you. The administration fee is 50% of the contract if cancelled over 28 days before the service begins.

Provision of Products

If you are a consumer based within the European Union, you have a statutory right to a “cooling off” period.

we will promptly contact you to let you know;

We may cancel the contract for services at any time with immediate effect by giving you written notice if:

Price and payment

Our prices are inclusive of VAT.

Credit card payments can be make using PayPal but will incur an additional charge for processing.

If the correct price is higher than the price specified on our site, we will inform you of this and ask whether you wish to continue with the order with the actual higher price. If the error in price is obvious, unmistakeable and mispricing could have been recognised reasonably by you, we will not be liable to provide the services or products to you at the lower price that was incorrect.

Payment for services is to be made in advance by bank transfer or Paypal except where agreed otherwise in writing between us. If you do not make any payment due to us by the due date for payment, we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 3% a year above the base lending rate of Lloyds 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.

Limitation of liability
