What happens next?
Once we have received your information, we will send you a booking form including details of your booking and terms and conditions. You need to read, check, sign and return this form by email.
Your seats are confirmed only once your signed form has been received by The Children’s Bookshow. We will send you two free books that can be used as a classroom resource.
Paying for your event
You will receive an invoice either from the theatre or The Children’s Bookshow at the beginning of the Autumn term. Payment must be cleared before the day of the performance.
What if you can’t attend?
By signing a booking form a contract is made between the School and The Children’s Bookshow.
Any school cancelling a booking within 8 weeks of the performance date will be liable to pay for their reserved tickets in full.
It is understood and accepted that class sizes may vary slightly between the date the booking is made and the date of the performance. However, any school making a reduction of over 10% to the original number of seats booked within 8 weeks of the performance date will be liable to pay for the tickets in full.
Special Covid 19 Measures
Despite the roadmap indicating that social contact restrictions will be lifted on 21st June 2021, Covid secure measures of hands, face, space, fresh air will still be expected to continue in order to mitigate risks at large-scale indoor gatherings. Each venue will provide a risk assessment detailing Covid secure practice and policies. The Children’s Bookshow team will share the individual theatre risk assessments with participating schools when they become available.
In the event that Covid 19 makes it impossible to hold a safe and secure event in the theatre The Children’s Bookshow will deliver a live author event and workshops online using a platform called Crowdcast. (We produced a very successful online festival earlier this year and we are confident that this would be a good experience for the children participating). All children attending would still receive their free book.
The Children’s Bookshow reserves the right to move the performance and workshops online if we experience a significant drop in audience numbers due to Covid 19.
If your School is unable to attend the theatre performance because of Covid 19 and The Children’s Bookshow is unable to deliver an online event, then a full refund will be offered.
The Children’s Bookshow is unable to give individual refunds for children who may be self-isolating and away from school owing to Covid 19. The Children’s Bookshow will still provide the free book.
If capacity is reduced by the theatre due to Covid 19 social distancing restrictions, The Children’s Bookshow reserves the right to honour bookings on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please get in touch with Marian as soon as possible if you can't attend.
