These events are not recommended for persons of a nervous disposition, anyone with a known heart condition, anyone with severe disabilities, medical conditions such as asthma or heavily pregnant women due to the nature of many of the buildings we investigate. If you are unsure whether an event/location maybe suitable for any health concerns you may have, please contact us before booking so we can advise you fully. You accept that there is an increase risk to health & safety due to being in poorly lit buildings and agree to follow all health & safety advise given at the events including taking responsibility for bringing a torch and wearing sensible shoes to reduce the risks of slips, trips and falls.
2. Deposit Options. To initially book onto an event you can either pay in full or you can choose to reserve with a deposit and pay the remaining balance no later than 4 weeks before the event date. The full ticket price is made up of part deposit part remaining balance (the value amount varies but is clearly shown in each event listing). The deposit reserves your space on the event. To secure your place, the full balance is then required no later than 4 weeks prior to the event taking place. If booking an event with less than 4 weeks to go before the event date, the whole amount is required at time of the booking and the deposit option will have been removed from sale. Management reserve the right to release your place if the full amount has not been received 4 weeks prior to the event. Haunted Evenings are under no obligation to remind customers that their remaining balance is due. Deposit payments are strictly non-refundable.
3. Cancellations / Refunds. Anyone wishing to cancel attending an event must notify management as soon as possible so their place can be offered elsewhere. If cancellation occurs after full payment has been made and is within 4 weeks of the event, no refund will be issued. If the cancellation is requested more than 4 weeks before the event date and the full balance has been paid, a refund of the balance only will be made. A full priced ticket is made up of a deposit and remaining balance (as indicated on the individual product listing). Deposits are strictly non-refundable
4. Booking Transfers. If you are unable to attend the event you have booked on to, please notify management as soon as possible as we may be able to offer you a transfer onto an alternative date .

Transfers requested 4 or more weeks prior to the date will, if agreed by management, be subject to a £5 administration fee per person wishing to transfer. No part refunds will be given if the event you wish to transfer onto is of a lesser value, and you will be required to pay the extra if the new date is a higher ticket price + the administration fee.
