A long long time ago…
Bogan Bingo could be quite flexible when people who booked shows forgot to check their calendars, decided that 40 people wasn’t enough to have a good time or (yes this happened) forgot to renew their clubs liquor license. Wasn’t he popular!
Instead of just keeping your money, (which Consumer Affairs says we are actually allowed to do because we are still willing to offer the service), if a show can’t go ahead we allow you to postpone your show and use your deposit like a voucher so we can book it again later in the year. And if that isn’t generous enough you can even use it for another type of show entirely. Or on sell it, sub lease it out or give to someone as a gift. Put it on EBay even.
At the risk of over explaining, below is 2019′ Terms and Conditions, all of which you can find on your confirmation sheet when you have booked your show:
Cancelling or postponing your show:
All payments are non- refundable. No exceptions unless requested immediately after booking your show.
However, all deposits and balances paid can be used as a voucher if enough notice is given to select a new date, and only if notice is given 4 weeks out from the date of your event.
If cancelling or postponing inside four weeks of your event, the following re-booking fees can apply* for compensating the performers and associated partners for any potential earnings lost in relation to holding the date for your event:
4 to 2 weeks out – rebooking fee of $180+gst
1 week out – re booking fee $280+gst
When postponing your show, a new date must be given at the time of your notice of date change or in a quick time that is agreed with, with your state co-ordinator with the rebooking fee being paid immediately to hold the new date.
When no new date is given, it will be considered a cancelled show, forfeiting all money paid.
