booking at all times.
1.5 We will endeavour to provide you with the particular Equipment you have booked but
there may be times when we have to provide you with alternative equipment due to a lack of
availability of certain Equipment or other circumstances. In such event we will provide you
with alternative Equipment of the same or similar specifications and quality to that which you
1.6 If on arrival at your event the Equipment we have supplied appears to be in an
unsatisfactory condition you should notify one of our staff immediately and no later than 24
hours after your arrival and check in at the event. In such an instance, we will use
reasonable efforts to change the Equipment as soon as is practicable but we cannot

are to change the Equipment we will provide you with alternative Equipment of the same or
similar specifications and quality to that which you booked.
1.8 You will return the Equipment to us at the end of an Event in the same condition as
when such Equipment was first provided, subject to any wear and tear that is consistent with
normal and reasonable use. We may retain the credit or debit card details provided to us
when you make a booking and reserve the right to deduct an amount equivalent to the cost
of repairing or replacing the Equipment to the extent such Equipment is not returned to us in
the same condition as when it was provided to you.
1.9 The Services and Equipment will only be available for use during the dates and times
specified by us when we confirm your booking. If you arrive at an Event before the “opening

You must return all Equipment to us before the specified “closing time”.

may be able to buy and retain at the end of an Event.)

shall keep the Equipment in good condition subject to any wear and tear that is consistent
with normal and reasonable use.
1.12 You shall not put the Equipment to any use other than its intended use and accordingly
shall not intentionally alter, modify or damage it without our prior consent.

any damage or loss you may suffer as a result of adverse weather conditions.

the booking to use the Equipment or Services unless we expressly allow you to. Please

Bookings and Payment
1.16 All bookings of our Services must be made online (via the internet).
1.17 Details of the prices of all our Services and Equipment are available on our website.
We may vary these prices from time to time and you are advised to check our current prices
before making any booking. The price you will pay for the Services we supply to you will be
the price displayed on our website at the time you make the booking (unless there is an
error on the website).
1.18 Payment must be made in full at the time you make your booking. All payments must
be made by credit or debit card online.
1.19 Upon receipt of payment in full we will send you an email confirming your booking. The
email confirming your booking will contain a unique reference number. You must refer to this
unique reference number on arrival at the event before we will allow you to use the Services
1.20 You may alter your booking at any time prior to the Event. If the altered Services you
require are more expensive than those originally booked you must pay the difference in the
two prices at the time you alter the booking. If the altered Services you require are less
expensive than under the original booking we may, at our absolute discretion, refund to you
the difference in the two prices. In addition, any such alteration to your booking will incur an
administration fee of £10.
1.21 Any alteration to your booking will be subject to space at the Event and availability of
Equipment. We will always try our best to meet your requirements for an altered booking but
if we are unable to do so your original booking will still be valid or you may cancel your
booking and request a refund. If you ask for a refund clause 1.25 will apply.
1.22 Payment for our Services and Equipment does not mean you own any such Equipment
unless expressly stated otherwise. The majority of our Equipment is for hire only and your
booking confirmation will state if you have paid to keep any Equipment at the end of an
Event. If Equipment purchased, through our Services is not removed from the event at time
of check out, you relinquish your right to that Equipment. Requests to retrospectively claim
such Equipment will be at our discretion. No Equipment purchased through our Services can
be exchanged for the equivalent monetary value if you chose not to keep any such

you the price you have already paid, less any bookings fees or administration costs applied

notify us of your cancellation any refund we make to you will be at our sole discretion.
1.26 The Events for which you book our Services and Equipment are not owned or operated
by us and we have no responsibility towards you for any part of the Event other than the
Services and Equipment.
1.27 Without prejudice to clause 1.26 above, we may provide some of the Services you
have booked at an Event through third parties. If you have a problem with any such Service
you should alert a member of our staff who will liaise with the relevant third party. Through
the third party we will endeavour to solve any problems as quickly as possible but we will not
be held responsible for any failure on the part of that third party.
1.28 Each Event may be subject to its own particular rules and regulations and we
encourage you to look at the website of the Event in question for all information regarding
the Event other than in relation to our Services and Equipment. Where an Event’s rules and
regulations impact on the Services and Equipment we provide to you (e.g. noise levels;
curfews) we will try and inform you in advance.

if those actions affect your enjoyment of the Event or Services. This applies whether or not
those individuals are using our Services or Equipment.

booking. If an Event is abandoned after it has started and you have begun using our
Services and Equipment any refund we give you will be at our sole discretion.

and will not gain you admission to the Event. Tickets for all Events should be purchased
independently of your booking with us.
1.32 We will not be liable to you in any circumstances for any property damage or theft (and
we recommend that you do not leave any valuables in the tents unattended at any time), for
pure economic loss, or for any indirect or consequential loss or damage such as lost profit,

whether caused by our negligence, the negligence of our employees or agents or otherwise.
1.33 Our total liability including the liability of our agents, subcontractors and employees in
respect of any Services or Equipment provided to you will (except in relation to personal
injury or death caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees or agents) be
limited to the amount paid for your booking.
1.34 You accept that the limitations of our liability set out above are reasonable in all the
circumstances. Nothing in these terms will limit or exclude our liability to you for death or
personal injury arising as a result of our negligence or the negligence of our employees or

1.36 You will not be entitled to withhold by way of set-off, deduction, counterclaim any

1.39 We will not be liable to you or be deemed to be in breach of these terms by reason of
any delay in performing, or any failure to perform, any of our obligations, if the delay or
failure was due to any cause beyond our reasonable control such as severe weather, a
natural disaster, strikes, governmental action, terrorism, war and civil unrest.
1.40 Save in the case of fraud these terms represent the entire agreement between the
parties and supersede any previous marketing information, representations or agreements
whether recorded in writing or otherwise.
1.41 No term of this Agreement will be enforceable by any person that is not a party to it.
1.42 The parties agree that these terms are fair and reasonable in all the circumstances.
However, if any provision of these terms is held not to be valid by a court of competent
jurisdiction but would be valid if part of the wording were deleted, then such provision shall
apply with such deletions as may be necessary to make it valid. If any of the provisions in
these terms are held not to be valid the remaining provisions of these terms shall remain in
full force and effect.
1.43 These conditions are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of
