Stretch Communications Ltd is a company registered in England and Wales under company number 4594879, with registered office at 62-70 Shorts Gardens, London WC2H 9AH (“we”, “us”, “our”). This Booking Policy is designed to ensure your satisfaction and understanding of the purchase process on weticketit.com.
1. GENERAL & DEFINITIONS
1.1 We ‘Offer’ (sell or give away) tickets and associated products and/or services on behalf of partners, license holders, artists, agents, producers, promoters, record labels, teams and venues. We refer to these parties who organise or provide the event and/or from whom we obtain tickets and/or associated products or services to sell or offer for free to you as our "Event Partner".
1.2 We Offer tickets as and when allocated by Event Partners. The quantity of tickets made available by us vary on an event by event basis. Tickets are generally offered through several distribution points, including online, call centres and, in some cases, box offices. Tickets for popular events may sell out quickly. Occasionally, additional tickets may be available prior to the event, however We do not always control this inventory or its availability.
1.3 For some events, tickets may be Offered as part of a “Package” (where a ticket for an event is Offered together with concessions, merchandise or other valuable benefits such as exclusive seating arrangements, accommodation, transport, dining or merchandise as an inclusive package at an inclusive price)
1.4 In this Booking Policy, we refer to any products and/or services Offered by us as “Items”.
1.5 By placing an ‘Order’ (a request for an Item), if we are able to fulfil the order, we will confirm it on screen and in email, usually in the form of a ticket or booking confirmation. Once we have confirmed that order, whether a financial transaction is required or not, we refer to this completion as a “Booking”.
1.6 To Order Item(s) from us, you must be 18 or over and have a valid credit/debit card issued in your name. To book Item(s) from us which are free, you must be 13 or over unless otherwise specified.
2.1 Any booking through our platform whether free or paid is subject to: (i) this Booking Policy; (ii) any special terms and conditions which may be displayed on our website; and (iii) the terms and conditions of the Event Partner(s) and/or event, which can be found on their respective websites. Venue terms and conditions may also be available at the venue box office.
2.2 Your contract of Booking of an Item starts once we have confirmed your Order and ends immediately after the completion of the event for which you have Ordered the Item, save that, if you have Ordered any physical product, your contract for the Booking of such product will end 14 days after the date of delivery of the product to you. All Orders are subject to payment card verification and/or other security checks and your transaction may be cancelled if it has not passed our verification process.
2.3 You agree not to obtain or attempt to obtain any Items through unauthorised use of any robot, spider or other automated device or any other illegal or unauthorised activity. We reserve the right to cancel any transaction which we reasonably suspect to have been made in breach of these provisions without any notice to you and any and all Items purchased as part of such transaction will be void.
2.4 We reserve the right to cancel Bookings which we reasonably suspect to have been made fraudulently.
3. PRICES AND FEES
3.1 Orders from us may be subject to a per Item service charge and a non-refundable per order delivery fee.
3.2 Whilst we try to ensure that all prices on our website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any Item you have Ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your Order at the correct price (and credit or debit your account as applicable) or cancelling your Order. If we are unable to contact you, you agree that we may treat the order as cancelled. If you choose to cancel after you have already paid the incorrect price, you will receive a full refund from us.
4.1 If you have purchased a ticket, or a Package, you are not entitled to cancel your purchase.
4.2 If you have purchased any product, you are entitled to cancel your transaction within fourteen (14) days of the date of delivery of the product (or during such longer period as may be specified in the Event Partner’s terms and conditions). You are not entitled to cancel any associated ticket purchase in such circumstances.
4.3 If you have Booked a free ticket, you may cancel the ticket via the website up until the cancellation deadline which will vary from event to event.
5.1 We aim to dispatch tickets as soon as possible. We aim to inform you of the timescales on your booking confirmation page and email. In some instances we are not able to specify the exact dates of dispatch, as the arrangements for dispatch depend on when we are in possession of the ticket stock used for a particular event. For some events, we receive ticket stock from our Event Partners close to the event date.
5.2 Please allow as much time as possible for your tickets to arrive. If your tickets have not arrived three days before the event (or, if you are travelling, three days before you leave on your journey), please contact us. Please include your reference number and the name and postcode the booking is made under.
5.3 We post tickets to the address given at point of Order. Please note that if the address in your booking does not correspond to that held by your credit card company, we may cancel your tickets.
5.4 We reserve the right to make tickets available for collection by you at the venue box office. We will notify you by telephone or email of the arrangements for collection (using the details provided by you at the time of ordering) if this becomes necessary. You may be required to provide your booking confirmation email and your photo ID to collect tickets.
5.5 Any and all products and/or services included in a Package are provided and fulfilled by our Event Partners, who are responsible for the delivery and the quality of such products and/or services. If you have any queries or complaints regarding the non-ticket element of the Package, please contact the relevant Event Partner directly. For contact details, please refer to the booking confirmation email.
6.1 Any ticket you purchase from us remains the property of the Event Partner and is a personal revocable licence which may be withdrawn and admission refused at any time. If this occurs, you will be refunded the sale price of the ticket which has been withdrawn or for which access was refused (including the relevant per ticket service charge but excluding the per order handling fee).
6.2 Policies set by our Event Partners, may prohibit us from issuing replacement tickets for any lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed tickets. For example for non-seated events, allowing a possibility of both the original and replacement tickets being used, may compromise the licensed capacity of the venue. If replacement tickets are being issued, we may charge you a reasonable administration fee.
6.3 When you receive your tickets, please keep them in a safe place. We will not be responsible for any tickets that are lost or stolen. Please note that direct sunlight or heat can sometimes damage tickets.
6.4 It is your responsibility to check your tickets; mistakes cannot always be rectified.
6.5 You have a right only to a seat of a value corresponding to that stated on your ticket. We, the venue or Event Partner reserve the right to provide alternative seats (whether before or during the event) to those initially allocated to you or specified on the tickets.
6.6 When Ordering tickets from us, you are limited to a specified number of tickets for each event. This number is included on event information page and is verified with every transaction. This policy is in effect to discourage unfair ticket ordering. Tickets may be restricted to a maximum number per person, per credit card and, for some events, a restriction may apply per household. We reserve the right to cancel tickets booked in excess of this number without prior notice.
6.7 Tickets may be Offered subject to certain restrictions on entry or use, such as restricted, obstructed or side view or a minimum age for entry. Any such restriction shall be displayed on our website or otherwise notified to you before or at the time you book the tickets. It is your responsibility to ensure that you read all notifications displayed on our website.
6.8 You may not resell or transfer your tickets if prohibited by law. In addition, Event Partners may prohibit the resale or transfer of tickets for some events. Any resale or transfer (or attempted resale or transfer) of a ticket in breach of the applicable law or any restrictions imposed by the Event Partner is grounds for seizure or cancellation of that ticket without refund or other compensation.
6.9 You may not combine a Ticket with any hospitality, travel or accommodation service and/or any other merchandise, product or service to create a package, unless formal written permission is given by us and the Event Partner.
6.10 A ticket shall not be used for advertising, promotions, contests or sweepstakes, unless formal written permission is given by the Event Partner, provided that even if such consent is obtained, use of our trade marks and other intellectual property is subject to our prior consent.
7.1 It is your responsibility to ascertain whether an event has been cancelled and the date and time of any rearranged event. If an event is cancelled or rescheduled, we will use reasonable endeavours to notify you of the cancellation once we have received the relevant authorisation from the Event Partner. We do not guarantee that you will be informed of such cancellation before the date of the event.
7.2 Please note that advertised start times of events are subject to change.
7.3 Tickets are sold subject to the Event Partner’s right to alter or vary the programme due to events or circumstances beyond its reasonable control without being obliged to refund monies or exchange tickets, unless such change is a material alteration as described in paragraph 8.4, in which case the provisions of this paragraph shall apply.
8.1 Occasionally, events are cancelled, rescheduled or materially altered by the team, performer or Event Partner for a variety of reasons. Contact us for exact instructions.
8.2 Cancellation: If an event is cancelled (and not rescheduled), you will be offered a refund of the sale price of your ticket(s), including the relevant per ticket service charge but excluding the per order handling fee. If an event takes place over several days and one or more day(s) is/are cancelled (but not all the days constituting the event), a partial refund only may be payable corresponding to the day(s) cancelled. If your Booking involved no financial transaction, no compensation financial or otherwise will be offered.
8.3 Rescheduling: Unless indicated otherwise in relation to a particular event, if an event is rescheduled, you will be offered seats at any rescheduled event (subject to availability) of a value corresponding with your original tickets. If you are unable to attend the rescheduled event, you will be offered a refund of the sale price of your ticket(s) including the relevant per ticket service charge but excluding the per order handling fee. You must inform us within the time specified by us if you are unable to attend the rescheduled event, otherwise we may reconfirm your booking for the rescheduled date and you will not be entitled to claim a refund. If your Booking involved no financial transaction, we may transfer your tickets to the new date or we may offer you an exclusive rebooking window. No compensation financial or otherwise will be offered.
8.4 Material alteration: If an event is materially altered, you will be offered an option to either reconfirm your order for the altered event or to claim a refund (of the sale price of your ticket(s) including the relevant per ticket booking fee but excluding per order handling fee), within such time as specified by us. Failure to inform us of your decision may result in your order being reconfirmed for the altered event and you will not be entitled to claim a refund. A ‘material alteration’ is a change which, in our and the Event Partner’s reasonable opinion, makes the Event materially different to the Event that Bookers of tickets, taken generally, could reasonably expect. The use of understudies in theatre performances and/or any changes of: (i) any supporting act; (ii) members of a band; and/or (iii) the line-up of any multi-performer or multi-talent event (such as a festival or a TV recording or Q&A that forms part of a screening event or exhibition) shall not be a material alteration. If your Booking involved no financial transaction, no compensation financial or otherwise will be offered.
8.5 To claim your refund, please apply in writing to: Stretch Communications Ltd, 62-70 Shorts Gardens, London WC2H 9AH (or to such other address as may be notified to you by us). You must enclose your unused tickets and comply with any other reasonable instructions from us. For accounting purposes your unused tickets must be received within 28 days from the date of the cancelled event.
8.6 If you have Ordered from us any Item associated with an event which has been cancelled, rescheduled or materially altered (such as car parking or travel) and a refund of a ticket is due to you in accordance with this clause 8, we will also refund you the purchase price of such Item purchased from us, including the per Item service charge but excluding the per order handling charge. If your Booking involved no financial transaction, no compensation financial or otherwise will be offered.
8.7 This Booking Policy does not and shall not affect your statutory rights as a consumer. For further information about your statutory rights contact Citizens Advice or the Department for Business Innovation and Skills.
8.8 We regret that, unless paragraphs 8.2, 8.3 or 8.4 apply, tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded after purchase.
9.1 Personal arrangements including travel, accommodation or hospitality relating to the Event which have been arranged by you are at your own risk. Neither we nor the Event Partner(s) shall be liable to you for any loss of enjoyment or wasted expenditure.
9.2 Unless otherwise stated in this clause 9, our and the Event Partner(s)’ liability to you in connection with the event (including, but not limited to, for any cancellation, rescheduling or material change to the programme of the event) and the Item you have purchased shall be limited to the price paid by you for the Item, including any per item service charge but excluding any per order handling fee. If your Booking involved no financial transaction, no compensation financial or otherwise will be offered.
9.3 Neither We nor the Event Partner(s) will be liable for any loss, injury or damage to any person (including you) or property howsoever caused (including by us and/or by the Event Partner(s)): (a) in any circumstances where there is no breach of a legal duty of care owed by us or the Event Partner(s); (b) in circumstances where such loss or damage is not a reasonably foreseeable result of any such breach (save for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence); or (c) to the extent that any increase in any loss or damage results from breach by you of any of the terms of this Booking Policy and/or any terms and conditions of the Event Partner(s) or your negligence.
9.4 Nothing in this Booking Policy seeks to exclude or limit our or the Event Partner(s)’ liability for death or personal injury caused by our or the Event Partner(s)’ (as relevant) negligence, fraud or other type of liability which cannot by law be excluded or limited.
10. ADMISSION AND ATTENDANCE
10.1 The venue reserves the right to refuse admission should patrons breach any terms and conditions of the event or Event Partner. The venue may on occasions have to conduct security searches to ensure the safety of the patrons.
10.2 Every effort to admit latecomers will be made at a suitable break in the event, but admission cannot always be guaranteed.
10.3 There will be no pass-outs or re-admissions of any kind.
10.4 The unauthorised use of photographic and recording equipment is prohibited. Any photos, videos and/or recordings may be destroyed or deleted. Laser pens, mobile phones, dogs (except guide dogs) and a patron’s own food and drink may also be prohibited (please check with the venue).
10.5 You and other ticket holders consent to filming and sound recording as members of the audience.
10.6 Prolonged exposure to noise may damage your hearing.
10.7 Special effects which may include, without limitation, sound, audio visual, pyrotechnic effects or lighting effects may be featured at an event.
11. QUERIES AND COMPLAINTS
11.1 If you have any queries or complaints regarding your purchase, contact us, quoting your order number given to you at the conclusion of placing the order.

11.3 If any dispute arises, we shall use our reasonable endeavours to consult or negotiate in good faith, and attempt to reach a just and equitable settlement satisfactory to you, us and the Event Partner.
11.4 Although this does not restrict your rights to pursue court proceedings, if we are unable to settle any dispute by negotiation within 28 days, you and we may attempt to settle it by mediation. To initiate a mediation a party must give written notice to the other parties to the dispute requesting a mediation.
11.5 As an online trader, pursuant to European Union legislation, we also draw your attention to the European Commission’s Online Dispute Resolution platform here, where you can access further information about online dispute resolution.

12.1 The Event Partner and its affiliates, successors, or assigns may enforce these terms in accordance with the provisions of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 (the “Act”). Except as provided above, this agreement does not create any right enforceable by any person who is not a party to it under the Act, but does not affect any right or remedy that a third party has which exists or is available apart from that Act.
12.2 All of these terms and conditions are governed by English Law and any disputes arising out of any transaction with TicketWeb are subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
