What happens if I am forced to cancel my event due to COVID-19 restrictions?
We understand how stressful this can be for our clients. Event Dancers UK are offering flexible booking options and advice to our customers by helping them to re-schedule any force majeure cancellations relating to COVID-19 to an alternative date with no additional booking/administration fees. We are happy to transfer the booking deposit across to a new date (subject to performer availability) and to help as much as we can to get the dates moved as quickly and easily as possible.
Event postponements resulting in rearranging the booking for an alternative date is encouraged over cancelling altogether. By doing so avoids loss of deposit and is the most beneficial resolution for all parties involved.
