Event date delayed due to Covid-19 Stage 4 re-opening delay;
Should your event be delayed from the 19th July 2021 onwards due to delays to Stage 4 you may move your booking to another weekend up to the 31st October 2021, there may be a difference in price, although we will do our best to reduce or eliminate any increases where possible.
Event dates that can no longer go ahead due to Stage 4 delays;
Local Tier Restrictions;
Customers with home city tier restrictions not a valid cancellation reason if activity city not in tier restrictions and can still proceed. Insurance policies issued in 2021 should cover you.
However if the activity supplier city location is tier restricted/number restricted and cannot proceed to offer their services we maintain and hold the right to move the booking within the season to an alternative city. We will make every effort to honour the same pricing although increases may incur and may be liable to the customer. Rules 2.1 & 2.3 apply.
All clients should get cancellation Insurance as per normal. It is advised that this should be issued in 2021 and cover COVID-19 related cancellations.
Restrictions in Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland
Unlocking in the aforementioned countries is currently occurring later than in England in general and caution should be taken when booking a weekend. We expect this trend to continue until full unlocking and we are cautiously expecting full unlocking 4 week after England opening on the 19th July 2021.
Please be aware, if it is not your home country you may be restricted from entering/leaving and if you are permitted to enter/leave, you may still face restrictions on group numbers indoors and outdoors that will affect your Stag and Hen Weekend and make it not possible to go ahead safely.
We are taking bookings in Scotland from the 13th August & Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland for the weekend of the 20th August onwards, 4 weeks from the level 4 lifting in England on the 19th July 2021.
Should you live in the countries and restrictions on numbers lift to permit your group size we will take bookings prior to the 13th & 20th August 2021 respectively.
Similarly if you live in these countries, you should not book your event in England before the 13th & 20th August should you not be permitted to leave/enter your residing country at the time of your booking.
Similarly if restriction for entering and leaving the countries lift we will update our booking guidance and groups residing outside these areas will be permitted to hold their events in these countries too.
You must not book with us on the presumption that restrictions may lift before the 13th August Scotland and 20th August other nations, as we will not move bookings to an alternative country unless you reside in the country as mentioned above.
Should you reside outside these areas and still book for weekends before the 13th & 20th August you must ensure you have an appropriate group cancellation insurance to cover you.
