Jamie Skelton Magician & Mentalist - BOOKING TERMS AND CONDITIONS
When booking Jamie via the online booking form or by any other means, including phone, text, whatsapp, email etc, you are confirming that you are in acceptance of these terms and conditions.
Please review carefully.
An initial deposit of 25% is due within 7 days of the invoice being sent, with the final 75% balance being due as in accordance with the ‘Balance’ section. Any fees are non-refundable and non-returnable in most cases, appropriate exceptions are discussed in ‘Prices & Cancellations’. Please note that if you wish to cancel there may be a further fee to pay in accordance with our cancellation policy – see ‘Prices & Cancellations’ below.
The outstanding balance must be settled with Jamie either on the day via cash/cheque/Revolut/Paypal or alternatively prepaid and cleared within his business account 7 days before your event.
Prices & Cancellations
Any prices quoted are valid for 28 days. If you wish to confirm an enquiry after 28 days, a new quote may have to be given. Jamie's work is very seasonal and to protect from the natural fluctuation in work and quotes across the year we impose a sliding scale cancellation fee as it gets considerably harder to source work as your event date gets closer. If you wish to cancel your booking for any reason within six months of your event date then 25% of the remaining balance is due. If you wish to cancel your booking for any reason within three months of your event date then 50% of the remaining balance is due. If you wish to cancel your booking for any reason within one month of your event date then 75% of the remaining balance is due. If you wish to cancel your booking for any reason within two weeks of your event date then 100% of the entire balance is due. If you fail to make full payment of the balance of the performance fee on the performance date, Jamie Skelton Magician Ltd shall be entitled to recover the balance of the agreed performance fee as a liquidated contract debt, together with interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 10% per annum.
Failure & Limit of Liability
In the very unlikely case of Jamie being in the position of not being able to provide you with your booked service due to illness or any other extenuating circumstance, he will make every effort to secure the services of another performer that he deem suitable and competent to his high levels. If he can’t then his responsibility is limited to the return of any money paid for your event in advance but no further liability will be sought. In the event of force majeure (including but not limited to war, fire, viral pandemics, government policy, public authority jurisdiction, "acts of god", extreme weather conditions, mechanical breakdown or strikes he can’t be held responsible for non—appearance.)
With regards to virtual events, in the unlikely event of a power outage, Jamie will contact the booker immediately and if possible will try to move his studio to an area with power. If this is not possible due to time constraints, Jamie will have to postpone his performance to a later date (subject to his availability) and no refunds will be permitted. Any deposits and fees paid in advance can be transferred to a later performance date.
Jamie doesn’t mind your guests taking photos nor does he mind hired photographers capturing his act, provided some photos are shared with him post performance. It is politely requested that no video footage is taken of the performance unless prior agreement has been made with Jamie, you and any official videographer (If one has been hired to cover the event).
Please make Jamie aware of the full address for your event, he cannot be held responsible for getting lost due to being misinformed. Please also ensure a car parking space at the venue is secured for Jamie.
Any cancellations must be made in direct communication with Jamie (Phone or email conversation) he will confirm cancellation in writing to you via email. Voicemails are not accepted.
Virtual Recordings/ Social Media posts
For marketing purposes, Jamie may record his online performance and may post screen captures to his professional social media page for publicity. Where possible, Jamie will not include names or any other personal info. If you do not wish to have your face recorded or published to social media, this must be made clear to Jamie in writing at least 24 hrs leading up to the event.
With all the legalities aside, we hope you enjoy your event and Jamie's performance!
