These Terms are only available in English. Please read these Terms, including those additional terms and conditions and policies referenced herein, carefully before ordering any Event Tickets. If you do not agree to all the Terms, then you will not be able to order any Event Tickets from our website. You should print a copy of these Terms, or save them to your computer, for future reference.

3. Personal information
4. Event Tickets
All visitors attending the Event at the Gardens must have a valid Event Ticket. A valid Event Ticket gives the Event Ticket holder entry to the Gardens to attend the Event specified on the Event Ticket on the date shown on the Event Ticket, subject to these Terms.
Event Tickets may be purchased online up until the specified Event start time.
If you have been sent Event Tickets by post, please keep them in a safe place as no duplicate tickets will be issued to replace lost or stolen Event Tickets.
Unless Trentham tells you otherwise, Event Ticket holders may enter the Gardens through the Gardens entrance only. Anyone found gaining access from unauthorised areas could result in their entry being refused. Upon entry, Event Tickets may be exchanged for a wristband allowing a valid Event Ticket holder access, exit and re-entry to the Gardens via the Gardens entrance. Any wristbands provided must be worn for the duration of the Event. Wristbands removed from the wrist or tampered with will be rendered invalid and will not be replaced. No duplicate wristbands will be issued to replace lost or stolen wristbands. Those without wristbands may be refused admission to the Gardens or may be removed from the Gardens.
Event Tickets are subject to the Event start and finish times and applicable age restrictions, as notified to you on our website. You are advised to read all information which applies to the Event before booking, and carry proof of your age.
We may limit the quantities of any Event Tickets that may be purchased at any time.
Certain Event Tickets may be available exclusively online through the website and all Event Tickets shown on our website are subject to availability. We will inform you by email as soon as possible if the Event Ticket you have ordered is not available and we will not process your order.
5. Our obligations to you
This section 5 only applies if you are a consumer.
Trentham is under a legal duty to supply Event Tickets which conform with a Contract, including that the Event Tickets match information we provided to you. Nothing in these Terms will affect these legal rights. Advice about your legal rights as a consumer is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
6. How the Contract is formed between you and us
Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.
After you place an order, you will see confirmation on the website that we have received your order. We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you a confirmation email that confirms that the Event Tickets have been ordered. The Contract between us will only be formed when we send you the confirmation email.
If we are unable to supply you with an Event Ticket, for example because of an error in the price on our website, we will inform you of this by email and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Event Tickets, we will refund you the full amount as soon as possible.
If you order or buy more Event Tickets than the maximum permitted per person, per card or per household, we may cancel all of the order, in which case you will be refunded the Event Ticket price you have paid.
Event Tickets you purchase are for personal use. Except as we may agree, you or your party must not re-sell or transfer (or seek to re-sell or transfer) the Event Tickets. If you choose to do so, Trentham may cancel the Event Tickets without prior notification, refund, compensation or liability.
7. Accuracy of billing and accounting information
You agree to provide current, complete and accurate purchase and account information for all purchases made on our website. You agree to promptly update your account and other information, including your email address and credit card numbers and expiration dates, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed.
The prices of the Event Tickets will be as quoted on our website from time to time together with any applicable booking fee. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of the Event Tickets are correct at the time of publication.
Prices for our Event Tickets may change from time to time without notice but any changes in price will not affect any order which we have confirmed with an email confirmation.
The price of an Event Ticket includes VAT at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Event Tickets in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
The price of an Event Ticket does not include any applicable delivery charges.
9. Promotions, discounts and vouchers
We reserve the right to offer (and alter) special offers or promotion on our Event Tickets. Any applicable special offers or promotions may not be used in conjunction with any other offer or promotion. From time to time we may run promotions at the Gardens (which may not be available on our website) or we may offer special promotions on our website that are not available at the Gardens. For these reasons you may sometimes find that Event Tickets on our website are priced differently to those at the Gardens.
We reserve the right to exclude any Event Ticket from discount or voucher schemes. Only one discount or voucher code may be used per order. You may be required to provide evidence of your entitlement to any discount or voucher.
Payment must be made by one of the following: Mastercard, Visa Credit, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, Maestro or JCB. Payment for the Event Tickets and all applicable delivery charges is in advance.
Should you be paying by credit or debit card, your bank may place a pending hold on these funds. This is out of the control of Trentham. This payment will be released when payment for your order is requested by Trentham, this is at the point your item is dispatched.
11. Delivery and collection
Unless you exceptionally opt for an alternative method of delivery in accordance with section 11(b) below, all Event Tickets will be delivered to you as a e-ticket in your confirmation email. The e-ticket contains a QR code which you must present at the Garden gates.
(b) Alternative methods of delivery
If your Event Tickets are made available for collection, the cardholder may collect the Event Tickets at the Gardens by presenting the booking reference and confirmation email used to book the Event Tickets. Without the booking reference and confirmation email the Event Tickets may be withheld.
For Event Tickets requested to be delivered by recorded post, we will try to despatch Event Tickets to you promptly. However, we may, where reasonable, make Event Tickets available for collection at the Gardens instead of posting them to you if: (i) posting is impractical due to timing; (ii) your Event Tickets are lost in the post; or (iii) we are otherwise unable to post the Event Tickets to you for any reason. You will be notified by phone, email or in writing (using the contact details provided by you) if this becomes necessary.
Your order will be fulfilled by the estimated delivery date set out in the email confirmation, unless there is an event outside our control. If we are unable to meet the estimated delivery date because of an event outside our control, we will contact you with a revised estimated delivery date or make your Event Tickets available for collection at the Gardens instead.
Delivery by post will be completed when we deliver the Event Tickets to the address you gave us.
We can only accept orders for delivery to addresses within the UK.
The Event Tickets will be your responsibility upon collection or from the completion of delivery. You own the Event Tickets once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
Always check your Event Tickets upon receipt and advise us promptly of any errors. Mistakes when ordering cannot always be corrected and any corrections are discretionary.
12. Delivery charges
All delivery charges will be made known to you as part of our order process and are as quoted from time to time.
13. No right of cancellation or refund
You have no rights to cancel your purchase of Event Tickets as they are bought for specific event dates – they are therefore non-refundable except in specific circumstances outlined in section 15.
As a consumer, you will always have legal rights regarding cancellation in relation to Event Tickets that do not match information we provided to you. These legal rights are not affected by anything in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Office.
14. Event outside of our control
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a Contract that is caused by an event outside our control. An event outside our control means any act or event beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not), civil disturbance, government action, or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic, pandemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks, travel restrictions or impossibility of the use of shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport.
If an event outside our control takes place that affects the performance of our obligations under a Contract:
(a) we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you; and
(b) our obligations under a Contract will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the event outside our control. Where the event outside our control affects our delivery of Event Tickets to you, we will arrange a new delivery date with you after the event outside our control is over.
15. Cancellation and changes
Trentham reserves the right to cancel the Event or make changes the Event programme and/or timings at any time.

In cases of bad weather, every effort will be made to present the Event. If the Event continues on as scheduled, refunds will not be offered.
If an Event is cancelled by us due to bad weather or because of the effects of the current COVID-19 outbreak we will automatically transfer your ticket to the rescheduled Event date and inform you of this change on Trentham’s website, social media and by e-mail using the email address you provided at the time of booking. If we are unable to reschedule the Event or you are unable to attend the rescheduled Event date, you may request a refund of the Event Ticket price you have paid from us, subject to an administrative fee, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Refund Request – [Name of Event]”.

23. Other important terms
These Terms and any policies or operating rules posted by us on this website constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between you and us, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and us (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms).
We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms.
A Contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
If you are a consumer and reside within the European Union, you may also be able to refer a dispute to the European Online Dispute Resolution (“ODR”) platform at http://ec.europa.eu/odr. The ODR platform is a web-based platform which is designed to help consumers who have bought goods or services online. It provides access to independent alternative dispute resolution services which are usually free for you to use. We have discretion as to whether we will agree to a complaint being resolved through the ODR platform. If you are a business, these Terms, their subject matter and formation (and any non-contractual disputes or claims) are governed by English law. We both agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
