Booking a Crafty Party
A Party Booking Form must be completed by the party organiser (the Hirer). Details of the party will be agreed and detailed in writing in the booking confirmation. Any further changes must be agreed as soon as possible. Crafty Parties work far better with small groups of about 6-10. In the event that the Hirer’s requirements cannot be met, Beading Brilliant will contact the Hirer to make alternative arrangements. Any setting up/taking down of equipment must be accommodated within the booking period.
Beading Brilliant will provide written confirmation of the party within 10 days of accepting the party booking. If you have not received this confirmation please contact Beading Brilliant as otherwise your party may not be booked.
Payment for your Crafty Party
Beading Brilliant requires a booking deposit of £30 before a party booking can be confirmed. Unless you have already paid the balance in full, the remaining balance for the Crafty Party must always be paid on the day. The deposit is non refundable and non transferable, as a small friendly business Beading Brilliant will always consider any reasonable request. Payment can be made in person in cash, or via BACS transfer. We request that for bank transfer payments, you send an email to notify us that the payment has been made, so that we can look out for it and apply the payment to the correct booking.
The Price of your Party entertainments will be agreed at the time of booking. Mileage costs of £0.45 per mile may be charged outside of 15 miles of Beading Brilliants base in Haywards Heath RH16.
Cancellation by the Hirer
Beading Brilliant reserves the right to apply a £30.00 administration fee for cancellation or rescheduled parties. Cancellation or amendments must be received in writing at least 30 days in advance of the party. Ordinarily the Hirer will then receive a full refund. If the Hirer cancels within 30 days or fails to turn up on the day and has not cancelled by the appropriate method, the full charge will be due. If the party needs to be rearranged due to illness please contact Beading Brilliant at the earliest opportunity.
Cancellation by Beading Brilliant
Although unlikely Beading Brilliant reserve the right to refuse, cancel or terminate a party at any time, either before or during the party, without any liability or refund.
Responsibilities of the Hirer
The Hirer is responsible for the care of all the children present at the party. We insist on a legal guardian or responsible adult being present at all times should they be needed in the event of an incident arising. It is the responsibility of the Hirer to ensure this happens.
If parties are held anywhere other than the Hirer’s home, Beading Brilliant will assume that the Hirer has either hired the venue or had permission to use the space, and have deemed the space suitable and safe to use for the types of activities being provided by Beading Brilliant, and your party as a whole. If we deem the venue to be unsuitable or if we feel that there are circumstances present of any kind that would be unsuitable to run a crafty party Beading Brilliant reserve the right to cancel or terminate the party.
If at any time the Beading Brilliant Crafter deems that conduct of one or more children or adults present, is unsuitable in order to continue with certain activities at the party the Crafter can reasonably cease activities until the situation is resolved or terminate the activity or Beading Brilliant’s services entirely.
Beading Brilliant party plans are appropriate to the age of the children as booked. They may not be appropriate for children outside the specified age range. If you have younger or older children attending the party we would ask that you please ensure that either the parent/carer or an adult supervisor is there to look after them to ensure that activities can run smoothly.
Please note that with all our parties we will normally require a table. A strong trestle table about 6ft long will be suitable. We will also need access to a safe electricity supply. Parking at, or near to your venue is essential for a party to take place as there is an array of equipment to deliver. Please inform the Beading Brilliant Party Coordinator of any parking restrictions at the time of of confirming your venue.
During our parties we ask that no food or drink is provided during the actual crafting that might distract children from the entertainment whilst it is happening.
Responsibility of Beading Brilliant
Beading Brilliant is covered with £10 million public liability insurance. All electrical equipment used is either brand new or PAT tested for safety.
Although we are DBS checked, children must not be left alone with the crafters and crafters can not be asked to accompany children to the toilet or assist with feeding.
Beading Brilliant will not have any involvement with food at the party. It is Beading Brilliant’s recommendation that the Hirer ensure that any children with food allergies are overseen by their own parents/carers.
The Use of Photographic Images
Beading Brilliant may take photographs for the use to promote Crafty Parties on their website and other online and printed marketing media. By booking a crafty party, you are consenting to those images being used to promote Beading Brilliant. If you would prefer for your images not to be used, please let Beading Brilliant know.
Beading Brilliant will adhere to Government guidelines relating to Covid-19. Where parties are allowed to take place, any limits on numbers or venue will be followed. This will be discussed when you enquire and the measures necessary detailed within your booking confirmation.
As a minimum, Beading Brilliant will where a mask throughout the Crafty Party. There will be enough borrowed equipment such as scissors, aprons, pens (depending on which craft you choose) to go around . All borrowed equipment will be cleaned before the party and allocated to each child during the party. When the crafting is done, these will be returned to a box for cleaning. Social distancing will be adhered to as far as possible. Hand sanitiser will be provided and used regularly by Beading Brilliant.
