utopia dance terms and conditions

In making a booking via this website you are accepting the terms and conditions as listed below.
 
Your booking is a contract with 'Utopia' and the lead name only. The lead name is responsible for advising their guests on all issues relating to the booking. Your ticket price includes entry to the event but does not include drinks or food. Minimum age of entry is 17 - anyone under the age of 18 may not purchase alcohol or have alcohol purchased for them. No refunds will be given once your ticket(s) have been purchased.

 

Entry is by reservation only although on occasion we do allow bookings to be taken on the door. You are liable for the cost of any damages or breakages incurred by you at the event. The management of Utopia reserve the right to refuse any reservation and admission to the event. Anyone attending this event agrees that they can be filmed and may appear in photographs and/or videos which may be used for promotional purposes and that they undertake not to make audio or video recordings of any of the event. We would advise customers that no refunds will be offered to customers who are refused entry or ejected from a venue on account of late arrival, being or appearing to be under age, declining to be searched, abusive, threatening, drunken or other anti-social behaviour (including smoking in no smoking areas), carrying offensive weapons or illegal substances.
 

In all arrangements involving third parties we act only as your agent and no liability of any kind whatsoever shall be attached to us in connection with or arising from such an arrangement with a third party. 

 

We do not accept any liability for any losses or claims arising from any inability to access our website or any failure to complete a booking on the website. We do not accept liability for any indirect or consequential loss of any kind in contract, tort or otherwise arising out of the use of the website or the purchase of the tickets or other goods or services from us by whatever means. Whilst every care is taken to ensure services ordered by you are supplied as advertised, we do not accept liability for loss or damage that is caused by any event or circumstances beyond our reasonable control. To the fullest extent permitted by law we will not be responsible for loss, damage or injury to any person or their property howsoever caused.

By entering and using our website, you consent to the collection, use and retention of your personal information. Information about you including your name, address, telephone number and email address is recorded on a computer database controlled by us and we abide by any and all data protection law as relevant at the time. The information is needed to process the transaction and fulfil your order and any subsequent problems or disputes. We may also use the information for internal administration and analysis by us and our associated companies. We do not sell, rent or trade your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes and all of your personal information will be treated in adherence to the prevailing law at the time of booking. We reserve the right to update or otherwise change the terms and conditions or amend the website at any time and without notice to you.

 

We will not accept any liability for tickets or other goods and services which have been ordered through our website using your credit/debit card by someone not authorised to do so. Our website uses industry standard secure servers supplied by Barclays to ensure the safety of orders placed on our website - your purchase is transacted by them, not us. No one can access any information sent by you as long as it is sent using the secure pages. Therefore you must only send your credit/debit card details where asked for on our website link and you must not send credit/debit card details by standard email.

The management reserves the right to change or adapt the attractions advertised for each event if necassary without notice either prior to the event or, if necassary, on the day/evening of the event itself. On this basis no ticket refunds can be claimed for tickets bought on the basis of attractions advertised.


If any part of these conditions is unenforceable (including any provision in which we exclude our liability to you) the enforceability of any other part of these conditions will not be affected. No failure or delay on the part of any parties to these conditions relating to the exercise of any right, power, privilege or remedy provided under these conditions shall operate as a waiver of such right, power or remedy. These Terms and Conditions and our agreement with you under them shall be governed by English Law, and we agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdictions of the English Court for the determination of any dispute between us.

COVID policy
 

We believe that all dancers before attending an event should carry out their own lateral flow test at home. This is essential to help protect our dance community.  Whilst we will not be physically checking your ‘Passports’ or test results we reserve the right to ask for proof of your negative test on arrival and also reserve the right to refuse admission if this cannot be produced. Ultimately we believe that as responsible adults we are all capable of understanding the importance of testing before going out dancing and therefore believe that placing trust in our members and our dance community is a key way back to a dance life as ‘normal’ as it can be.

As a point of reassurance, we do know, from research locally and nationally, that over 90% of our dance community are fully vaccinated. Nevertheless, it is possible to contract and transmit the virus double vaxed or not, so, for the time being we ask the members of our dance community to each carry out a lateral flow test, at home, before you come dancing, so that, to the best of your knowledge, you are 'safe' to dance. Val and me and all of our Crew have made a commitment to do the same. Needless to say you should not attend if you feel at all unwell

Facemasks are optional.

You attend all Utopia events at your own risk and must carry out your own personal risk assesment before attending.


If you have to cancel your attendance to an event due to a positive Covid test result on proof of your test result we would be happy to carry your ticket over to a future event.
