Cancellation by Pageant Party We have never had to cancel an event, however, if for some reason we could no longer carry out the event, we would consult with the client.  If this is more than 21 days in advance we will refund all monies paid and work with you to find a new DJ the client will pay direct.  If it is less than 21 days before the event we will endeavour to find you a new disco and we will pay them direct (including any extra fees up to a maximum of 25% more than the original booking fee).

Non attendance of event/ severe breakdown of equipment/ late start  Pageant Party have never failed to provide a disco.  However, this can never be ruled out (such as major car crash multiple equipment failure during the event etc) we will always work our hardest to provide your event with the best that is available.  If the event last less that 25% of the agreed playing time or does not take place at all then Pageant Party will refund all monies paid, plus a maximum of 25% of the booking fee as compensation.  If more of the 25% playing time has been achieved then a refund will be made on a pro-rata basis.  If the start of the event is delayed by more than 30 minutes due to Pageant Party liability is limited to providing that time as an extension at the end of the night.  If delays are over 30 minutes than a refund will be done on a pro-rata basis.

Late start by customer If Ground zero-DJ cannot start the setup by the agreed time due to the client or the venue not being ready then Pageant Party will quietly wait and prepare as much as possible until such time as the client/venue is ready.  We will work with the client/venue to then set up as quickly as possible and to start playing as soon as we can.  Under no circumstance are Pageant Party obliged to play late or refund any money.  Any extra playtime will be charges at the normal rate of £50/70 per hour or part of.
