All bookings are subject to availability of the Event and formal acceptance by Us, and We will confirm such acceptance to You by sending You a letter or email stating that the booking has been confirmed (the “Booking Confirmation”).
The contract between Us (“Contract”) will only be formed when We send You the Booking Confirmation. The Contract will relate only to those Events which We have confirmed in the Booking Confirmation.
