Corporate Terms and Conditions

1. The Agreement

Capitalized terms in this Agreement have the meanings given in Clause 13. The Agreement, which consists of the Booking Form and these Terms and Conditions, does not include any other oral or written promises, terms or conditions. Any amendment or change to the Agreement shall have no effect unless agreed upon in a writing that refers specifically to the Agreement and is executed by duly authorised representatives of both parties. Each Agreement returned signed by the Client shall be an offer by the Client to purchase Event facilities and services and shall only become a binding Agreement when countersigned by the Company.

2. Confirmations and Guest Numbers

The final details of the Event (such as final timings, menus and special requests) must be confirmed at least ten Working Days before the Event. The Client must inform the Company of the Final Number at least three Working Days before the Event. This Final Number will override the Likely Number specified but will not affect the Minimum Number/Spend. The Client shall provide the Company with details of the nature and agenda of the Event, names of guests and relevant third parties, upon request.

3. Payment

3.1 Price. The price for the Event shall be calculated as stated on the Booking Form. The Client guarantees the Minimum Spend or the Minimum Number will attend the Event (as applicable) and the Company has calculated its charges on this basis. The amount payable by the Client will therefore be calculated according to the highest of (a) the Minimum Number/Spend (b) the Final Number or (c) the number who actually attend the Event.

3.2 Payment. All accounts incurred will be invoiced if credit is approved by the Company, in its sole and absolute discretion. If credit is not approved, Client will be required to pay the entire cost of the Event by the dates specified in the Booking Form. Payment is due for all credit accounts on presentation of invoice. Any queries will not delay immediate payment of the outstanding balance. No allowance or refund can be made for meals and other elements not taken within the agreed package rate. Payment must be made in Pounds Sterling (UK) payable to the Company by cheque, BACS, bankers draft or credit card.

3.3 Deposits. The Client must pay the Company the deposit payment(s) specified in the Booking Form. If the Client fails to pay any such deposit within seven days after its due date, then the Company may (in its sole and absolute discretion) treat the Event as having been cancelled by the Client and, in the Company’s sole and absolute discretion:

3.3.1 The Company may set off any cancellation fees which become payable against the deposit; and

3.3.2 if the deposit held by the Company is greater than the amount of any cancellation fees payable, then the balance shall be refundable to the Client.

3.4 Credit. Credit facilities within the Company may be obtained on application to the Company (subject to the agreement of the Company). Credit facilities must be finalised at least two (2) weeks prior to the Event. All amounts incurred against an agreed credit facility will be invoiced immediately after the Event. The Client shall pay all invoices on presentation of the invoice. The Company reserves the right to conduct credit checks or otherwise satisfy itself as to the solvency of the Client prior to providing credit facilities. The Company may at any time withdraw any credit facility, making any outstanding balance immediately due and payable.

3.5 Interest. When credit facilities are granted and payment is not received within the stated terms, we reserve the right to charge an appropriate rate of interest (4% above base rate) or make a collection charge. All such agreed credit accounts must not exceed their credit limit at any time.

3.6 Extras. The Client shall pay by credit or debit card for any food and beverages or other goods and/or services not provided for in the Agreement or otherwise in correspondence but made available upon request of the Client on the day of the Event.

3.7 Price Variations. In the event of circumstances beyond the Company's control (including, but not limited to, increases in the standard rate of VAT), the Company reserves the right to vary the prices specified in the Agreement to an extent that reflects such circumstances.

3.8 Invoice Disputes. If the Client has a bona fide dispute in respect of the whole or part of an invoice, it shall notify the Company immediately on receipt of invoice. Any invoice not disputed in accordance with this Clause 3.8 will be deemed to have been accepted by the Client. The parties shall co-operate in good faith to resolve the dispute over any invoice as amicably and promptly as possible and on settlement of any dispute the Client shall make the appropriate payment.

4. Cancellation by Client

4.1 If the Client wishes to cancel an Event or cancel the reservation of some or all bedrooms reserved, the Client must provide the Company a written notice of cancellation. Cancellation shall be effective, final and binding on the Cancellation Date. Any notice of cancellation received out of the hours of 9.00am and 5.00pm shall be deemed made on the next Working Day. Any postponement of any Event shall be considered as a cancellation under this Clause 4.

4.2 If the Client cancels a Booking, the Company will charge a cancellation fee. This cancellation fee shall be a percentage of the charges payable in respect of the Minimum Number/Spend (and, if any separate charge is payable in respect of room hire, of such room hire charge), according to the Cancellation Notice as set out below. If the Event is cancelled less than 3 Working Days before the Event, the Company is entitled to charge according to the Final Number, if higher than the Minimum Number/Spend.

4.3 Where any bedrooms are reserved, such bedrooms:

4.3.1 are block booked and reserved exclusively to the Client and accordingly will not be released unless notice of cancellation of such reservation in respect of the relevant bedrooms is given in accordance with Clause 4.1. The cancellation fees set out in Clause 4.4 will if applicable then apply.

4.3.2 will (unless cancelled as provided above) be charged at the room rate specified in the Agreement (or, if no separate room rate is specified in the Agreement, at the standard room rate) for all nights booked even if any guests do not stay for all nights so booked (including by reason of early departure).

4.4 Cancellation of some or all bedrooms will incur a cancellation fee.

4.5 The cancellation fees payable under this Clause 4 are a genuine pre-estimate of the loss the Company will incur arising out of a cancellation. The actual losses incurred by the Company may be greater or less than these cancellation fees. Upon receipt of written cancellation of the bedrooms, rooms will be returned into general inventory at best available rate.

4.6 In addition to the cancellation fees due under Conditions 4.2 or 4.4, the Client must reimburse the Company (on an indemnity basis) for any expenditure incurred in respect of any cancelled Event including (but not limited to) any costs, charges or penalties as a result of having to make consequential cancellation of its own arrangements with third parties in relation to the Event.

4.7 The Company may invoice the Client for any cancellation fees payable at any time after the cancellation. The Client shall pay such invoice on presentation of invoice.

5.1 The Company may cancel the Booking:

5.1.1 if the booking might prejudice the reputation of the Company;

5.1.3 if the Client fails to pay any sum when due.

5.2 The Company may charge the cancellation fees provided in Clause 4 in the event of any cancellation under this Clause 5.

5.3 Where applicable, in the event of a Raceday being cancelled prior to the first race of an Event the Company shall endeavour to offer a suitable alternative Event to the Client. If the Company cannot offer such alternative then a refund will be made after deduction of any costs and expenses related to the cancelled Event which the Company cannot reasonably avoid.

6. Outside Services
