Schools Terms & Conditions
Terms and Conditions: Barnes Children’s Literature Festival Primary Schools’Programme
The Primary Schools’ Programme is delivered by the Barnes Children’s Literature Festival Community Interest Company (the ‘Festival’).
These Primary Schools’ Programme Terms and Conditions form part of the Terms and Conditions of the Barnes Children’s Literature Festival.
The Primary Schools’ Programme comprises a number of events. For the removal of doubt, an ‘event’ is a single performance that is delivered in a Festival venue. All Primary Schools’ Programme events are ticketed, all tickets are free of charge and tickets are only available on application.
Tickets to Primary Schools’ Programme events can only be accessed by filling out and submitting the online booking form available via the Primary Schools’ Programme pages of the Festival website: https://www.barneskidslitfest.org/schools-2023/
Primary Schools’ Programme tickets are subject to availability. The applicant booking on behalf of their school will receive a booking confirmation email from the Festival.
Schools may not book more than one year group per event. This allows more schools to take part.
The Festival reserves the right to alter the Primary Schools’ Programme without notice in the unlikely event that it is necessary to do so.
Primary Schools’ Programme tickets may not be sold. Tickets that are sold are void.
A condition of booking events for the Schools’ Programme is that the school agrees to distribute the Festival programme to the school community, either as a physical copy or as a PDF. If the school does not agree to this, bookings from that school cannot be accepted.
Amending a booking
If a school needs to change or amend their booking in any way, this must be done as soon as possible by email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
The school representative will receive an email from the Festival confirming the outcome of the change request. Depending on the nature of the request, the Festival cannot guarantee that the request will be accommodated (eg. a request to increase your group size or a request to switch to a different event).
If a school needs to cancel a booking or part of a booking, the school must inform the Festival as soon as possible as the Festival may be able to reassign seats to another class or school from its waiting list.
To cancel a booking or part of a booking, a school must submit a Schools’ ProgrammeCancellation Form, which can be found on the Venue booking webpage.
The Festival will follow up the cancellation notification with an email confirmation to the school’s representative, confirming that the cancellation notification has been received.
In the unlikely event that a class or school fails to attend the event they have booked, or that a class or school cancels a booking within 30 days of the event date, the Festival reserve the right to apply a cancellation fee of £2.50 per ticket booked, which will be invoiced to the school.
The Festival understand that absences happen, so no charge will be incurred if only a few members of a class or school are unable to attend.
In the event of the cancellation of an event, the Festival will not be held responsible for any expenses, such as transport or sustenance incurred by the school or class.
