DCP Ltd General Ticket Terms & Conditions 2019


Pre-booked and E-Tickets brought on-line must be printed and bought with you at least 20 minutes prior to the start of your event session time. Without this proof of payment and E-Ticket your visit may be compromised.

Please note: You may have to queue to show these tickets so allow plenty of time. If you are late for your appointment you may miss your time-slot and have to be reallocated at a new time & date but only if available. If there are no tickets available either that day or that event year you will forfit your right to entry due to your time-slot no-longer being avilable. There are no exceptions to this rule.


Our events are staged in various weather conditions so please dress accordingly. 

Refunds & Exchanges/Cancellations
Once booked on-line, refunds are only applicable if Calverley Park, Tunbridge Wells is closed due to the following unforeseen circumstances:
Closure due to Health & Safety reasons
Technical problems which cannot be resolved meaning we cannot run our event
Extreme weather conditions i.e. Heavy Snow, flooding or dangerously high winds
Tickets are transferrable to a different date in the same event year as long as we are advised accordingly by e-mail or telephone at least 48 hours before hand. (two days)
Any sessions that are cancelled due to extreme weather will be rescheduled on the next available day that year if possible. If in the event of extreme weather and a reschedule cannot be arranged (as we are closed) a full refund will be given via PayPal or via the original method of payment?

Late cancellations that are called in on the same day of your ticket booking cannot be refunded but maybe moved to another date that same event year if available. Requests for tickets to be reallocated at a new time & date must be placed via e-mail or telephone only. A text message will not be considered as a valid communication to change your date/ticket/time-slot appointment. There are no exceptions to this rule.
