Leisure Terms and Conditions

BUSINESS TERMS AND CONDITIONS


To comply with DTI Regulations, every entertainment agency and business must publish its Terms of Business.  It is a criminal offence to offer to supply entertainers without first making you aware of current terms. Please read thoroughly the Terms of Business which apply to you i.e. if you are booking entertainment for a wedding, private function or birthday party etc. then  Terms of Business (1) apply.  If you are booking on behalf of a company or other organisation, Terms of Business (2) apply.
TERMS OF BUSINESS (1)
1) When acting as an Employment Agency, Horizon Leisure Limited acts as negotiator only and is not a party of the contract.  For this reason we cannot accept responsibility for non-fulfilment or breach of any such contract, but every reasonable safeguard is assured.  Wherever possible in such cases, we will replace the entertainer with one of similar price and quality.
2) When acting as an Employment Agency, Horizon Leisure Limited charges a fee equivalent to an agreed percentage of the contracted fee receivable by the Entertainer.
3) Cancellation of contracts negotiated through Horizon Leisure Limited is not normally possible without the agreement of all concerned parties.  In the event of cancellation by the hirer the following fees will apply: 0-7 Days 100%, 8-14 days 75%, 15-30 days 60%, 30+ days Reservation Fee.
4) In most cases we require a reservation fee to book entertainment.  Reservation fees are non-refundable, except when an engagement is cancelled by the artiste (see 3) in which case all reservation fees will be repaid in full.  Horizon Leisure Limited reserves the right to deduct our commission from reservation fees received.
5) The balance is due 28 days prior to the event, unless otherwise stated.
6) In order to ensure that there are no non-appearances or let downs, all verbal agreements are confirmed by the signing of a written contract.  In the event of very short notice bookings, the written contract may be sent after the event for your records.  Non return of duly signed contracts does not constitute cancellation and all verbal agreements will remain in force.
7) Any contract negotiated through this agency shall be subject to these Terms of Business unless otherwise agreed in writing between all concerned parties.
8) No servant or agent of this agency has the power to vary these terms and conditions.
9) The hirer is to provide a suitable performing area.  Unless otherwise agreed the hirer must provide an electrical supply meeting, or exceeding British Standards where electrical equipment is to be used as part of a performance.  Where the entertainer is expected to wear stage clothing the hirer must provide adequate dressing room facilities, toilets are unacceptable.
10) The hirer agrees not to approach the entertainer directly to engage for further bookings, but that all future bookings are made through this office, except where future bookings are to take place in excess of 12 months from the initial performance date.
11) The Artist is not obliged to take part in any photographic, sound, tape or video recordings
12) The Artists are responsible for their own Income Tax and National Insurance Contributions
13) The Artists and Hirer are responsible to provide adequate insurance and any safety Certificates that are required to comply with legislations
14) For Children’s entertainment it is agreed that appropriate adults will be permitted throughout the performance to be in attendance
15) Any payments held on account or any invoice payments will be paid out to the Artist or the Hirer within 7 days of receipt of cleared funds.
TERMS OF BUSINESS (2)
1) When acting as an Employment Business, Horizon Leisure Limited is party to the contract as the supplier of entertainment.  In the event of non-fulfilment or breach of any such contract we will accept responsibility up to the cost of the entertainment only.
2) Under certain circumstances, i.e. illness, accident or other events beyond our control we may have to replace an act with a substitute of similar price or quality without notice or compensation.
3) In the event of cancellation of an engagement, the following charges will be payable:  0-7 Days 100%, 8-14 days 75%, 15-30 days 60%, 30+ days Reservation Fee.  It is an integral part of this agreement that such charges are accepted and will be paid within 14 days of our invoice.  These fees reflect the penalties we will have to pay the cancelled entertainer/s. Interest of 8% per annum will be charged on all overdue accounts.
4) In order to secure a booking, a deposit equal to 25% + VAT of the total fee may be required.  Deposits are non-refundable, except where an engagement is cancelled by us in which case all deposits will be immediately refunded in full.
5) The balance on any engagement is normally due 10 working days before the event takes place unless otherwise agreed in writing.  If the entertainment booked for such an event becomes unavailable and we are unable to find a suitable replacement all monies received will be repaid.
6) All our fees are subject to VAT at the current rate.
7) In order to ensure that there are no non-appearances or let downs, all verbal agreements are confirmed by the signing of a written contract.  In the event of very short notice bookings, the written contract may be sent after the event for your records.  Non return of duly signed contracts does not constitute cancellation and all verbal agreements will remain in force.
