Terms and Conditions – Expanded

In these terms and conditions “PM Music” refers to the promoter Peter MacCalman, trading as a Sole Trader (as applicable).

Purchasing tickets

1. Tickets you purchase are for personal use. Except as we may agree, you and your party must not re-sell or transfer (or seek to re-sell or transfer) the tickets in breach of the applicable terms. A breach of this condition will entitle PM Music to cancel the tickets without prior notification, refund, compensation or liability.

2. In addition to the ticket price your order may require payment of a booking fee per ticket, a transaction fee per order and/or other supplementary fees that may apply to the event. In the event of rescheduling, cancellation or a material breach of conditions, the booking fees and other supplementary fees are not refundable.

3. If you order or buy more tickets than the maximum permitted per person, per card or per household, we may cancel all of the order or tickets.

4. To prevent fraud, protect PM Music and yourself, we may carry out checks and/or you may be asked to provide additional information (such as a copy of a credit or debit card statement) after your booking so we can verify your purchase. If we suspect fraud we reserve the right to cancel any order or tickets.

5. You must inform PM Music of any change of address, contact phone number or email address, both before and after receipt of the tickets. Our contact details are at the bottom of the page. Our preferred method to contact you is email, so you should take care to provide a current, valid email address and be aware that your email filter settings may treat our emails as spam or direct them to your junk folder.

6. An order for tickets is not complete until accepted by us. We try to ensure all prices are accurate but errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of tickets you have ordered we will inform you as soon as possible and we may either cancel the order (in which case you will be refunded the ticket price and any booking, transaction or supplementary fees you have paid) or give you the option of confirming your order at the correct price.

7. Whilst we may allocate specific seats to you, when relevant we have the right to change these seats to others of equal value.

8. On rare occasions the show or event may be filmed or recorded. Buying a ticket affirms your consent to the filming and sound recording of yourself as a member of the audience. If you have any objection to this, should this happen when you attend a show or event, please contact a member of the Theatre or Venue Management.

9. Tickets cannot be transferred, exchanged, or refunded once purchased other than for the reasons set out in these terms and conditions. This is subject to any rights you may have pursuant to Ticket Plan Protection purchased when you bought the tickets.

Delivery and collection

10. Tickets will be despatched to you electronically; there are no physical tickets issued through our online purchase system.

11. You can also collect tickets at the venue box office on the night of the show but the cardholder must present the card used to book the tickets as identification as well as the unique security code provided at the point of booking on the e-ticket. Other identification or letters authorising collection may not be accepted and the tickets may be withheld at the box office.

12. Always check your tickets upon receipt and advise us promptly of any errors. Mistakes when ordering cannot always be corrected and any corrections are discretionary.

Cancellation, change, rescheduling or postponement of an event

13. Decisions to change or cancel events are the responsibility of PM Music who cannot be held responsible for any resulting costs you may incur for travel, accommodation, or any other related goods or service or other compensation.

14. You should always check that an event is going ahead at the scheduled date, time and venue through our website and/or the venue.

15. If you have purchased tickets and PM Music cancels an event we will try to inform you. This will usually be contact by email for online bookings or in urgent cases it may be by phone if a number has been provided.

16. If an event is rescheduled, changed or moved due to circumstances beyond PM Music’s control, for example but not limited to public calamity, royal demise, epidemic, fire or act of god, then any tickets purchased will be valid for the new event and location. PM Music reserves the right to announce the new event details and location within 30 days of announcing that the event will be rescheduled, changed or moved. Any tickets purchased for the original show will not be valid for refund during this 30-day period until the new event has been announced. Any tickets purchased for the original show will not be valid for refund once the new event has been announced.

17. If an event is rescheduled, changed or moved due to circumstances beyond PM Music’s control, for example but not limited to public calamity, royal demise, epidemic, fire or act of god, then PM Music reserves the right to give refunds solely at their discretion. Please send details of the circumstances involved and proof of purchase to info@pmmusic.co.uk; we will respond to your case within 7 days, see Refunds 20-22.

18. If the new event details are not announced within the 30-day period and this time period expires, then the tickets will become valid for full refund upon presentation of proof of purchase, see Refunds 19–21.

19. If an event is cancelled for reasons within PM Music’s control, for example but not limited to staffing, double booking and contractual errors, then you will be offered a refund upon presentation of proof of purchase, see Refunds 20–22.

Refunds

20. If for any reason you are entitled to a refund, you must present proof of purchase by sending the etickets and the PayPal receipt to info@pmmusic.co.uk. PM Music reserves the right to ask for further proof of identity should that information be required to validate your proof of purchase.

21. Once the 30-day announcement period has expired (see paragraph 16) and the event has been officially cancelled, any refund will usually be paid, using the same method you used to buy the tickets, within 30 days from the date of cancellation or the date that we receive your proof of purchase email, whichever is later.

22. No refunds will be offered under any circumstances if you fail to comply with the all terms and conditions applicable to those tickets, the venue or the event (see paragraph 23 and 24 below).

Attending an event

23. PM Music has no responsibility whatsoever for any loss or damage of any kind suffered at or in connection with any event (including loss, damage or theft any personal property at an event).

24. Admission to an event is at all times subject to any terms, conditions or rules of PM Music and the venue operator. If you breach those terms, conditions or rules then PM Music or the venue operator may refuse admission or require you or other ticket holders to leave the venue.

25. Amongst other things, you will need to comply with health and safety rules and any security requirements (including security searches for the safety of those attending the event). The venue or PM Music will have rights to refuse admission or eject you in certain circumstances and these are likely to include if you are involved with abusive, threatening, drunken or other anti-social behaviour, or carry offensive weapons or illegal or prohibited substances or make unauthorised audio, video or photographic recordings. There will often also be rules restricting or preventing the admission of latecomers.

26. PM Music will highlight any terms, conditions or rules relating to the event of which it is aware and which it considers particularly significant, onerous or unusual. This will generally include age restrictions, ticket types etc. Information on where you can find full details of relevant terms, conditions or rules will be available from the Promoter or venue operator via the box office or their website or during the online booking process.

27. Before you finalise your booking, please read all the information that applies to the event and/or ticket. If you or any member of your party have particular requirements please raise these when booking and we will endeavour to address your query. There can be no guarantee that requirements can be met in advance or particularly if notified at the event.

28. When you receive your tickets, check the details carefully. When attending the event, carry photographic proof of age.

29. Specific seats may be allocated to you at the time of booking, but PM Music or venue operator reserves the right to change these seats to others of equal value.

30. Every effort to admit latecomers will be made at a suitable break in the event, but admission cannot always be guaranteed.
