1. The Organisers act as agents for the participating restaurants, accepting all Entrant bookings and payments on their behalf. Once inside each restaurant, responsibilities between Entrants and the restaurant are the same as between the restaurant and any customer.
  1. Tickets for the Event may only be booked and paid for through the Event website at www.MarlowTastes.menu. Payment can be made by debit or credit card immediately following booking. Tickets will not be valid unless fully paid and are not transferrable without the permission of the Organisers.
  1. The Event is not suitable for young children, and therefore the minimum age of an Entrant is 18 years.
  1. During booking We will have been provided with personal information, including names, phone number, email address for Entrants which We confirm will be kept secure. This personal information will be used for the purpose of organising and managing the Event, including where necessary sharing with participating restaurants and providing follow up information immediately after the Event. It will be destroyed two years after the Event.
  1. If the marketing box was ticked during the booking process, it allows Us to also keep and use the personal information provided about Entrants only to promote future events organised by Us. We will not use personal information for any other purpose including giving or selling it to any third party for marketing.  You may opt out of this agreement, or your agreement may be withdrawn at any time by advising Us in writing at info@marlowtastes.menu.
  1. We do not charge a booking fee or card payment fee, so would welcome a donation in lieu. Any donation box on our website can be accessed to make a charitable donation. All UK tax payers can help us claim an extra 25% from the UK tax authorities by providing the requested information. Higher rate taxpayers can reclaim further Gift Aid for themselves.
  1. Lead Entrants are responsible for passing on Event information to all Entrants booked by them, and for ensuring that the Entrant information provided is correct. We will not be responsible for the consequences of any incorrect information or failed communication.
  1. We will close the Event for further bookings on Monday 25th March 2024 (the Final Booking Date) to enable completion of Event arrangements with participating restaurants. We reserve the right to close the Event for further bookings prior to this date if necessary.
  1. If We cancel the Event, We will notify You and your Group as soon as practically possible. In such a case we will endeavour to refund all payments in full within 7 days.
  1. After booking, but before the Final Booking Date if any Entrant is unable to attend the Event, please let Us know as soon as possible. We may agree to transfer your ticket(s) if you offer a replacement customer. If We are able to resell your ticket(s) We will refund 90% of the ticket cost. Unfortunately, no refunds are possible after the Final Booking Date.
  1. The Event takes place in designated areas, outdoors in the streets of Marlow, and inside participating restaurants. We are not responsible for the safety of any Entrant or others beyond those responsibilities imposed by law. Our website contains general advice for all participants relating to possible safety risks. By making the booking all Entrants agree that the risks involved are understood and accepted. 
  1. On arrival at each restaurant, it is each Entrant’s responsibility to ensure that the menu choices that have been booked are suitable (including for any relevant allergic conditions).
  1. A strict timetable detailing the start and finish times of each course at respective restaurants will be published prior to the Event. The timetable will include 15 minutes between courses to walk from and to successive restaurants. It is the responsibility of each Entrant to ensure arrival at the allocated restaurant before the published start time of their next course. We are not responsible for the consequences of any failure to do so.
  1. Drinks may be purchased at each participating restaurant but must be consumed only on their premises. No drinks can be taken into participating restaurants.
  1. Event helpers will give instructions and guidance to Entrants to ensure the smooth running of the Event. All Entrants agree to listen to and act upon this information and any advice given.
  1. Because of the nature of the event, We may communicate information via mobile phone number(s) and/or email address(es) provided at or after booking. Entrants are responsible to access these communications in a timely manner, including keeping phone(s) active and charged during the Event. Entrants must notify us immediately if any phone number or email address change after booking.
  1. We accept no liability for any injury, or loss or damage to property as a result of an Entrant attending the Event.
