You will not be permitted to attend a Session if payment has not been made in advance.

 

4.2 We will provide the Services at the location relevant to the Session you have booked. This information is available via our online booking system, on our website, or can be provided on request. You should ensure that you are aware of the location of the Session that you are attending prior to completing the booking. We will not be held responsible for any errors made by you during the booking process.

 

4.3 If a Session has to be cancelled by us, then as much notice will be given as possible via the email address you provided in the booking process. An alternative date for the Session will be given, but if this is not convenient, a full refund (less booking fees) will be issued to you.

 

4.4 If you are unable to attend the Session you have booked for any reason, you may cancel your booking via the booking system. In the event of cancellation by you, , you will not be entitled to any credit or refund. However, an applicable Franchisee may at their discretion (but without any obligation) either: (i) provide a credit towards any future Session(s) to be operated by that franchisee over the following twelve (12) months; or (ii) permit you to transfer your booking to a third party.

 

4.5 The provisions of Part 3 of the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (concerning your right to cancel) do not apply to the contract between us, on the basis that the contract falls within the exemption set out in section 28(1)(h) of those Regulations (services related to leisure activities where the contract provides for a specific date of performance).

 

5. Specific obligations regarding private parties and events

 

5.1 You, as the host of the private party or event shall be responsible for booking the venue and shall notify us no later than fourteen (14) days prior to the Session of the location of the party or event and any potential issues with access to, parking at or general use of the venue for the Session. 

 

5.2 You shall ensure that the number of attendees at the party or event do not exceed the number agreed by us when accepting your booking.

 

5.3 We will confirm the price and any other charges to you orally, in writing, or via our booking system prior to you proceeding with the booking. Our charges are calculated on the  basis of us providing the Session for a maximum period of one (1) hour, unless otherwise agreed with the applicable franchisee.  Our charges also cover the setting up (up to 30 minutes before) and clearing away of the activity after the Session. 

 

5.4 When booking a private party or event, we will require you to pay a deposit equal to fifty percent (50%) of the booking fee in order to reserve the date (the “Deposit”). Your booking will  not be confirmed until you have done  so.

5.6 If, for any reason, we cannot provide  the Session at the agreed date and time, we will provide you with as much notice as is reasonably possible and arrange (if possible) for another Franchisee to provide the Session. In the event that an alternative Franchisee is not available,  you can cancel the contract, in which case we will provide you with a full refund (including the Deposit, less any booking fees incurred by us).  

 

5.7 If you wish to cancel your booking, you must notify us as soon as possible. If you cancel your booking more than two (2) weeks prior to the date that we are to deliver the Session, we will be  entitled to retain the Deposit,  however we will provide you with a  full refund of any other monies paid to us in connection with the booking.  

 

5.8 If you wish to cancel your booking less than two (2) weeks prior to the arranged date, we shall endeavour to re-arrange your booking to another suitable date and/or arrange for your booking to be fulfilled by an alternative Franchisee who may have greater availability. If we are able to re-arrange and/or transfer your booking, an administration charge of £50 shall be payable by you in order to secure the re-arranged date and time. 

 

5.9 If you do not wish the Session to be re-arranged, please note that we will be entitled to retain the price in full on the basis that we will have committed staff and resources to assisting you with the planned private party or event and may not be able to re-sell the proposed party or event date, resulting in us incurring loss.

 

5.10 The provisions of Part 3 of the  Consumer Contracts (Information,  Cancellation and Additional  Charges) Regulations 2013  (concerning your right to cancel) do  not apply to the contract between us,  on the basis that the contract falls  within the exemption set out in  section 28(1)(h) of those Regulations  (services related to leisure activities  where the contract provides for a  specific date of performance).
