Terms & Conditions for Parties

Last updated, 25 March 2024

Bookings & Enquiries 

  • Party booking enquiries can be made via our Parties website enquiry page.
  • Bookings are subject to availability.
  • Please note that a Party enquiry does not in any way confirm a party as booked. Sound Pop Academy will contact you via email or telephone to request additional information about the party in order to provide an accurate quote for your requirements. 

Payments 

  • A non refundable deposit (25% of the total party cost) is required to secure your booking. Payments should be made by BACS and within 10 calendar days of the invoice date. Any payments made over and above the minimum deposit will be treated as deposit monies and are non refundable. 
  • Should a 25% deposit not be paid within the specified time, we reserve the right to cancel your booking and reallocate your slot.
  • Payment of deposit to book a party confirms acceptance of these terms and conditions.
  • Where full party payments (over and above the minimum numbers required for your party) are made at the time of booking, Sound Pop Academy will assume these numbers to be definite and no refund will be given for any overpayment due to lesser attendance of guests on the day.
  • Balance payments are due 6 weeks (42 calendar days) before the day of your party.
  • Late payments (defined as a payment received within 42 calendar days of the party date) will incur an admin fee of 12% of the remaining balance due.
  • Parties where the balance has not been paid in full within 2 weeks of the party date will be cancelled with no refund given.

Cancellations 

  • In the event of your cancellation of a party (for any reason whatsoever) deposits will not be refunded. In certain circumstances a transfer of deposit to an alternative date may be considered but is at the absolute discretion of Sound Pop Academy and include a £25 admin fee. Rescheduled bookings must be completed within 2 months of the original party date. In the event of a rescheduled party, the party theme must remain the same and include all elements of the bookings that were originally quoted for.

  • Our themed parties run between 1 hour and 1 hour 15 minutes and include the attendance of one Sound Pop Academy Party leader.
