✪ TICKETS ✪
I have bought some £18 tickets initially although I expect many more will be interested in joining us so will add tickets over time. They will RUM out at some stage so please pay ASAP so I can buy enough tickets and guarantee spaces for everyone.
WE MUST ALL GO IN AT THE SAME TIME, MEETING AT 6:15PM because there are app tickets barcoded on my phone and I have a block of them. You can not turn up after I am inside, you will not be admitted because the app can not account for anyone missing after initial entry.
✪ WHO CAN ATTEND? ✪
Members of our group may attend with an RSVP. Because this is a limited ticket event, we are unable to include guests, strangers, non-members or couples.
If you are not a member of our group (Southend Over 40s), simply apply to join us and then RSVP. Look out for the "request to join" button on any of our event pages.
✪ TICKET PAYMENT ✪
On this page, Click "RSVP" to say you are going (or maybe "PAY NOW"). This takes you to Paypal where you can quickly pay by debit or credit card even if you don't have a Paypal account.
You will be asked to pay £18.90 of which Paypal deduct approx 90p in fees (they don't work for free). This leaves exactly £18 for us to buy your ticket.
✪ MONEY BACK + REFUNDS ✪
If the organisers of this event cancel the event, they will only transfer tickets to a date in the future. They have done this twice already.
Your ticket is not refundable if you fail to turn up or wish to cancel within 24 hours of the event.
Apart from that, if you cancel or can't make the new date, I'll gladly transfer your ticket to the next person who pays for one and then refund your money (once I have sold the 15 tickets I purchased). To cancel, simply change your RSVP to NO and message me (mike) with at least 24hrs notice.
NOTE: All members cancellations are processed according to cancellation time. So if somebody else has already cancelled before you then you will be 2nd in line for a possible refund. If nobody else in the group wants a ticket then of course there can be no refund.
