Terms and Conditions

COVID 19 AMENDMENT – Any bookings secured with a deposit after 1st January 2021, will be subject to this additional term.
Deposits are non-refundable. If the government restrictions mean that the venue is unable to provide your event when your booking is to take place, we will transfer your booking to a new date, to be secured within 12 months of the government restrictions being lifted subject to availability. We appreciate your support in this tough time and continue to look forward to bringing you a fantastic event.

  2. Making an Enquiry/ Booking
    1. We do not charge additional, admin or booking fees. The price you see is the price you pay.
    2. We will display available venues and companies as close to the time/date/location you are looking for – We aim to respond to all booking enquires within 12 hours of your enquiry. If the time and/or date that you asked for is not available we may offer as close an alternative as possible.
    3. If you choose to accept an available event we have offered you, you will be required to pay a deposit. Up until the point of paying the deposit, we cannot guarantee that the event will remain available to you, and can be confirmed by other groups.
    4. Only by confirming with a minimum deposit (group size and deposit amount varies depending on the venue) will no other group be able to secure the time and date which we have offered you.
    5. The venue may have additional terms and conditions that will apply to your event.
    6. Non-alcoholic options. We understand that there may be some people in your group who are unable to drink alcohol due to reasons such as needing to drive, or pregnant etc. In most cases, they will still be able to take part in the fun of the event but make mocktails (non-alcoholic cocktails) instead. The price for a mocktail masterclass participant is the same as a regular participant, as the price includes the dedicated bartender, area in the venue and entertainment provided within the masterclass. If there are any members of your group requiring non-alcoholic places, please do let us know well in advance of your event.
    7. Once your booking has been confirmed, the venue will contact you to confirm all the details and give you a time scale for payment of the balance to be paid. The balance has to be paid at least 1 week before the event or service. Failure to pay the balance on the due date may result in the event being cancelled.
    8. We may provide bartenders directly for your event – Occasionally we may provide the event or service (for example where you have selected your home or office as the venue or in certain venues) and in those circumstances, we will outline the payment details along with confirming the event.
    9. We also operate a lead generation system, where our suppliers may opt to receive your contact information directly rather than offer their services through MyCocktailMasterclass. In this case, from that point, the supplier will contact you directly, and you will deal solely with the company (or companies, Max of 3 companies). The venue/supplier is not employed by mycocktailmasterclass and we cannot be held responsible for the service provided. Your deposit and all money/communication regarding your event will be with the company (or companies).
    10. By using our site, and making an enquiry, you agree that we can pass on your contact information for the purposes of discussing and quoting for your event to a limited number of interested companies (max 3).
    11. It may be the case where we operate a lead generation service as well as offer you options through the website, in which case you can decide which company, package and offer is most suitable for you

    2. If you wish to amend a confirmed booking, please contact us as soon as possible to enable us to see if the new request is able to be accommodated.
    3. If you wish to reduce your group size or cancel the event following payment of the deposit to us, you must inform us in order to edit/cancel the booking. Each venue has a minimum group size required for your masterclass to take place (this varies from venue to venue). If your group numbers reduce below the minimum group size required or you cancel the class, you may still be required to pay the package price for the minimum number of people required by the venue
    4. You can reduce the number of people in your confirmed group; however, the deposit(s) for those people no longer attending are non-refundable and cannot be used towards paying the final balance. Subject to the venues ts and cs, the full package price for these people no longer attending may still be payable. This is relative to how long before your confirmed event date you notify us of the reduced numbers or cancellation. This time period varies for each venue.
    5. You can cancel your confirmed event, however, the deposit(s) are non-refundable. Subject to the venues ts and cs, the full package price may still be payable.

Additional group members cannot be added on when you arrive at your event. Your additional places are NOT confirmed until all deposits are received.
    7. Failure to pay additional deposits prior to the date of the event or service will result in the original price being payable for the additional participants. You will not receive the sale price or special offer price you may have purchased your packages at originally.
    8. If you have not paid the additional Deposits within 7 days after the event or service, we may levy an admin fee of 10 per person on top of the outstanding amount. If after 1 month after the event or service date the outstanding amount remains unpaid debt collection agencies may be brought in to recover the funds.
    9. Once you have confirmed your booking date with a venue you are bound by their terms and conditions regarding cancellations or changes. It is not possible to change the booking unless the venue agrees to the change. Any changes to the time/date/location/venue/number of people etc. are at the full discretion of us and the venue.
    10. Sometimes the venue may need to cancel the experience at short notice for reasons beyond their control. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you contact the venue on the week before your event. We regret that in the event of cancellation, we are unable to reimburse travel, accommodation or any other expenses you may incur in relation to the cancelled event.
    11. We cannot be held responsible for any decision of the venue to cancel/change the event, including in the event of any unforeseen circumstances, such as (but not limited to) members of your group being intoxicated on arrival, failure to pay when the venue requests, low attendance, late arrival, non-arrival, failure to provide proof of age or for any other reason.
