We know that the world has changed and there is always going to be uncertainty around events in the age of a pandemic, so here is our approach to making this work:
- The event will be fully COVID-safe and compliant above and beyond any basic government health requirements to do what we reasonably can to protect your health and safety and that of all attendees. That will include appropriate social distancing and other measures.
- COVID cancellation: if the event is cancelled or has to be moved due to COVID issues, we will offer you a full refund.
- If you’re unwell we will offer a cancel-on-the-day refund. It’s in everyone’s interest to ensure anyone who feels unwell stays away from events, so we will offer you a full refund if you are showing any COVID-like symptoms with no questions asked.
