If the pre-agreed artist cannot perform or attend your event – these include Illness, snow, fog, or force of nature, We will endeavour to supply a replacement artist of equaly ability.

Damage to Equipment
If any of our lighting or sound equipment is damaged whilst at your event, we will actively pursue the repair or replacement costs of the damaged equipment. We suggest that you take out event insurance.
If an artist has to travel longer then 2 hours post-event to return home we may ask you to arrange, book and pay for accomodation locally this will be before you confirm your booking. Also, we ask not to be accommodated in a “guest house” as we arrive back very late at night, a bit sweaty and smelly and upset the land-ladies!

c) For the provision of this service STYLISH Entertainment Ltd. charges a fee equivalent to an agreed percentage of the contracted fee receivable by the Artist.
d) The Fee (deposit) is charged for processing your booking. Therefore there is no provision for a refund of depsoit in any circumstances.
