Therefore, in the unfortunate case that our freshers events do not take place on the displayed date due to nightclubs/bars still remaining closed: – We will postpone the event until a later date (when nightclubs/bars are reopened & it is safe for us all to party again) & your ticket will STILL BE VALID for that date. – If we are forced to CANCEL the event, we will issue a FULL refund on any ticket or wristband you have purchased.
