1) GENERAL TERMS
Any breach of any conditions of the Booking Agreement by the Customer or Venue may result in Event Lounge refusing to hire or provide any service, or ceasing to hire or provide any service before the end of the allotted time. In each such instance, no recompense shall be made to the Customer.
An event is not confirmed until a signed Booking Agreement is received by Event Lounge along with a 25% deposit. A booking date is held for 14 days from the date of enquiry and will then be released for other bookings if the signed Booking Agreement is not received.
Once a Booking Agreement has been signed and received by Event Lounge, bookings can only be amended by agreement of both parties. Although packages may be upgraded if available, the Customer won't be able to downgrade.
A deposit of 25% of the total hire cost is payable on booking, the remainder to be paid 1 month before your event. If the event is within 2 months of the booking date a deposit of 50% is required, the remainder to be paid 1 month before event.
Event Lounge will charge the following fees should a cancellation occur: Within 120 days of the event: The full agreed fee.
Within 180 days of the event: 50% of the full agreed fee.
The initial 25% deposit is NON REFUNDABLE under any circumstances.
Any unpaid cancellation charges after 30 days of invoice will be passed to a collections agency who will act on behalf of Event Lounge. Further charges may then be added to your account.
RESPONSIBILITY FOR GUESTS
The Customer is responsible for the behaviour of his / her guests. Event Lounge or Event Lounge staff will not tolerate anti-social behaviour by the Customer, guests or other staff at the venue. Threatening or aggressive language and behaviour will not be tolerated and Event Lounge staff reserve the right to cease performing if the situation is deemed to be unacceptable working conditions. In particular it should be ensured that all children are supervised.

EQUIPMENT & DAMAGE LIABILITY
All equipment remains the property of Event Lounge. The Customer will be liable for any damage or loss suffered to Event Lounge equipment during the 'Hire Period.'
The 'Hired Period' is defined as running from the time the Event equipment is assembled to the time the Event equipment is disassembled by us. Please note, any loss of or damage to equipment, other than that caused by fair wear and tear, will be charged for.
RESPONSIBILITY FOR EQUIPMENT
If the Customer requests an early set up, necessitating that equipment be left unattended for any period, the Customer shall be responsible for the same as per the preceding paragraph.
Event Lounge insists that no drinks or food be placed on our equipment at any time. If damage occurs to equipment, whether intentionally or accidentally, the Customer will be responsible for the damage and liable to pay for the repair or replacement of the equipment.
EXTENSION OF SERVICE
The Event Lounge staff will be available from the start time in the Booking Agreement (except for Force Majeure). Event Lounge shall not be liable to extend the performance or provide refund due to late running of prior events such as, but not limited to meals, presentations or speeches.
Photo Booth, Video Diary and Fun Casino timings will be pre arranged, and any overtime may be charged at idle hour rates.
Unless arranged when booking, idle hours are charged if you want our services to start later than the set up time. For example, if you require the booth setting up at 6pm but do not want it running until 9pm, this would be charged at 3 idle hours on top of the hire costs. Idle hours are charged at £25 per hour.
Event Lounge shall be entitled to terminate this contract without liability for any reason beyond its control, for example if Event Lounge staff are unable to perform due to fire or theft of equipment, illness or breakdown of vehicle or Act of God.
Event Lounge will use all reasonable endeavours to locate replacement staff or DJ, but, in the unlikely event of a non performance all monies paid will be refunded, but this will be the limit of Event Lounge’s liability to the Customer.
