Booking terms and conditions for Corporate Events.
The amount quoted and agreed upon by the client and the performer is specific to the event and details provided to Jamie at the time of booking and/or communication.
An advance deposit of £75.00 is required to confirm the booking. The remaining balance shall be payable 14 days before date of the performance. Upon signing of this agreement and receipt of deposit, this contract shall be considered binding.
Payment of deposit can be made by cheque, cash, Paypal or bank transfer, made payable to Jamie Williams. The remaining balance can be paid using the same methods outlined above.
It is the responsibility of the client to give accurate details to the performer regarding venue location. Incorrect details such as venue, time and date may result in Jamie arriving late or in extreme cases not arriving at all. The client must acknowledge and understand that it is not possible for each and every guest to see Jamie perform. The inevitability of guests being busy, at the bar, in the toilets or other activities means that they may miss Jamie performing. The client must understand that Jamie is a close-up magician and is not a child's entertainer or a stage magician. His act will consist primarily of objects he can carry in his pocket and will not include large effects that would be associated with stage magicians.
