- Eventblitz acting as agent
Eventblitz is a ticket agent that sells Tickets for Events allocated to it by an Event Venue or Event Organiser.
Eventblitz is not responsible for the organisation or staging of the Event and has no control over the cancellation or rescheduling of or for material changes to any Event.
All Tickets are offered subject to availability and to these Terms and Conditions. These Terms and Conditions should be read carefully prior to confirming Your order and any queries relating to them should be raised with the Event Organiser prior to purchase, as placing Your order constitutes acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.
A valid Ticket must be produced to get into an Event. Removing any part of, altering or defacing the Ticket may invalidate Your Ticket.
It is Your responsibility to check Your Tickets to ensure they are correct as if you have made a mistake, it cannot always be rectified after purchase and we will not be responsible for any failure to rectify a mistake and/or refund the Ticket price in such circumstances. Accordingly, please check your Tickets carefully on receipt and contact us immediately if there is a mistake.
If we discover an error in the price of tickets you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price (and credit or debit your account as applicable) or cancelling your order and receiving a full refund from us.
We and the Event Organiser reserve the right to provide alternative seats at an Event to those specified on the Ticket if the staging of the Event reasonably requires, provided they are of no less value to that stated on the Ticket.
Where a concession is claimed, proof of identity and concession entitlement (for example of age or student status) may be required in which event you will be obliged to provide at any such time proof of your entitlement to the concession.
Ownership or possession of a Ticket does not confer any rights (by implication or otherwise) on You to use, alter, copy or otherwise deal with any of the symbols, trademarks, logos and/or intellectual property appearing on the Ticket.
- Price and payment
The price of the Ticket shall be the price set at the time We accept Your order. All prices set are inclusive of any applicable taxes but exclusive of any booking fee and collection or delivery fee.
No order will be accepted until We have received full payment. We will confirm Your order once We have received full payment.
- Changes to Event
The Event Organiser and/or the Venue reserves the right to make alterations to the published Event programme where reasonably necessary.
- Cancellations and refunds
Except where We offer, at our absolute discretion, an applicable Ticket exchange or resale or refund facility, once you have purchased a Ticket from Us, you will not be entitled to exchange or to obtain a refund for that Ticket other than as described in this section.
If an Event is cancelled, or rescheduled (subject to the below) or where there is a material change to the programme of an Event, you may be entitled to a refund of the face value price paid (or, if the face value has been reduced by the Event Organiser, the discounted face value price paid) of the Ticket (excluding any booking fee or service charges) from the Venue or the Event Organiser.
Where an outdoor event is cancelled or curtailed because of adverse weather, the Venue or Event Organiser may not be liable to make any refund or pay any compensation beyond the refunds that may be payable under the Venue’s or Event Organiser’s rules
A “material change” is a change which in the Venue or Event Organisers reasonable opinion, makes the Event materially different to the Event that the purchasers of a Ticket, taken generally, could reasonably expect. Changes to supporting acts, members of a band or the line-up of any multi-performer event or the use of understudies will not be a material change.
Eventblitz has no control over the cancellation, rescheduling or making of material changes to any Event and will not be responsible for any refund payable in these circumstances other than when we may be able to issue refunds directly (using funds provided by or due to the Venue or Event Organiser) in which case we will use our reasonable endeavours to refund you the face value of the Ticket (excluding any booking fee or service charges) as soon as reasonably practicable.
If we are unable to issue refunds directly, we will be able to provide you with information as to whom you should contact to seek a refund, but we are not liable to you for such refund if you are unable to obtain a refund from the applicable Venue or Event Organiser.
Where such a refund is sought you must bring this to our attention as soon as possible upon becoming aware of such change, cancellation or where the Event has been rescheduled, prior to the rescheduled event.
If you wish to claim a refund in any of the circumstances described above, You should notify Us as soon as possible and no later than 28 days after the applicable cancellation, rescheduling or material change. If we are able to provide You with a refund, as described above, We will refund You the face value price of the Ticket (excluding any booking fees or service charges). Refunds will only be made to the person who originally purchased the Ticket(s) and, wherever possible, will be made using the same method as was used to purchase the Ticket(s) except, at our discretion.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, EVENTBLITZ shall not be liable for any loss, injury or damage to any person (including You) or property howsoever caused:
(a) in any circumstances where there is no breach of contract or a legal duty of care owed by EVENTBLITZ;
(b) in circumstances where such loss or damage is not directly as a result of any such breach by EVENTBLITZ (save for death or personal injury); or
(c) to the extent that any loss or damage results from Your negligence or breach of contract by You and/or any applicable laws or regulations.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, EVENTBLITZ shall not be liable for any indirect or consequential losses or loss of data, profits, revenue, earnings, goodwill, reputation, enjoyment or opportunity, or for distress, or any exemplary, special or punitive damages, arising directly or indirectly from Your use of any EVENTBLITZ service and/or any tickets made in connection with it. In particular, please note that personal arrangements including travel, accommodation or hospitality relating to the Event which have been arranged by You are at your own risk. Liability for the cancellation or rescheduling of an Event, or for material changes to an Event, will be limited to the refund as set forth in above terms.

EVENTBLITZ is not responsible for any internet connection errors experienced while using the EVENTBLITZ website or any EVENTBLITZ services.
EVENTBLITZ is not responsible for the actions or failures of any Venue, performer or Event Organiser. Under no circumstances shall we be liable for death or personal injury suffered by You or Your guests arising out of attendance at an Event, unless caused by our negligence. Neither shall we be liable for any loss or damage sustained to Your property or belongings, or those of any guests under Your booking, attending an Event other than caused as a result of our proven negligence or that of the Venue or the Event Organiser or other breach of statutory duty.
EVENTBLITZ shall not be liable to You for failure to perform any of its obligations under these terms and conditions to the extent that the failure is caused by an event of Force Majeure (defined below in these General Terms and Conditions). This clause does not affect the terms of any clauses specifically providing for a right of refund.
Nothing in these terms and conditions seek to exclude or limit EVENTBLITZ’s liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence, fraud or other type of liability which cannot by law be excluded or limited.
- Cancelled/re-scheduled Events
It is Your responsibility to check if an Event has been cancelled or re-scheduled and to check the date and time of any re-scheduled Event. Where we become aware that an Event is cancelled or re-scheduled, We will use Our reasonable endeavours to notify You using the details You provided Us with at the time of ordering, but We may not always be able to do this and We do not guarantee that you will be informed of such cancellation before the date of the Event.
It is Your responsibility to inform Us of any change to the contact address, telephone number or email address You provide Us with at the time of ordering.

Void Tickets are non-refundable.
- Restrictions on the purchase of tickets
Tickets may be restricted to a maximum number. Any such restriction shall be notified to You at the time You book the Tickets. We reserve the right to cancel Tickets purchased in excess of this number and without the Agent’s agreement, without prior notice unless the purchase of an excess was due to Our error.
