This ticket sets out the terms and conditions of sale of the costume ordered on the front-face and details the basis upon which you can participate in the activities of the band as a reveller on Carnival Monday and Tuesday (‘the Event’).

The purchase of this ticket constitutes acceptance of the Terms and Conditions.

This ticket cannot be exchanged, transferred or refunded after purchase. You must present this ticket (and be able to prove your identity with valid Photo-ID) in order to collect your costume and to be able to participate in the Event.
​1. Payment
  1. Unless you have paid the full purchase price for your costume by no later than the date given for its collection/delivery, you will not be able to collect it. The time for payment of the price shall be of the essence.
  2. Please note that the deposit paid to secure the costume (which involves sourcing materials, cutting, sewing and working on it) is non-refundable.
  3. If you wish to make other part payments towards the purchase of the costume, please ensure that all such payments are reflected on the record above and that you get a receipt evidencing such payments. In the event the Producer agrees a refund of any installments paid towards the purchase price (not including the deposit which is non-refundable), then such refund shall be at the Producer’s sole discretion, and it shall only be made payable in the name of the purchaser that appears on the ticket.
  4. In the event you fail to pay for the costume in accordance with sub-paragraph (1) above, the Producer shall have the right to resell the costume at the same or at a discounted price without any liability to you.

2. Costume
  1. The Producer shall use all reasonable endeavors in providing a costume that matches the specifications given for collection/delivery at the appointed time. No other specifications, descriptive material, written or oral representation, correspondence or statement, promotional or sales literature shall form part of or be incorporated by reference into these Terms and Conditions.
  2. The Producer shall not be liable for any failure to deliver the costume if such failure is occasioned by fire, theft, inability to secure materials or any other cause or circumstance beyond the reasonable control of the Producer in that regard.

  4. You must make all necessary arrangements to collect or take possession of your costume at the time and at the place given for collection/delivery. If you fail to do so and, in any event, should you fail to collect the costume by 9:00 pm on Carnival Sunday, you will be deemed to have abandoned the costume and your place in the band. In that event the Producer will have the right to withhold, dispose and or resell the costume (at the same or a discounted price) without any liability to you.
