Booking Terms and Conditions
We are now able to accept provisional face-to-face bookings but there are some very important terms and conditions in place to help keep everyone safe:
If anyone in your household/bubble is presenting symptoms including a high temperature or a persistent cough in the two weeks leading up to your event date, please inform us and you can choose to exchange for a virtual service, exchange for a gift certificate to use when everyone has been symptom free for at least two weeks, or cancel and receive a full refund
Imaginacts Entertainment Ltd is not to be held liable for any illness that may occur during or following an event
Should our performer(s) be unwell or presenting any symptoms and we are unable to find a replacement, you can choose to either reschedule your booking, or cancel with a full refund - we will endeavour to give you as much notice as possible in this case
We have character appropriate masks available and you are very welcome to request that your character wear one - this is entirely at your discretion
If upon arrival at your event or at any time during the booking, the performer feels that any of our conditions are not being observed, they will have to leave your event and no refund will be given
Other standard booking terms and conditions still apply
Bookings before 21st June:
Your booking must take place outdoors in a garden or other outdoor space which is accessible without going indoors at all and which is large enough to accommodate your and your guests plus your chosen character

We are not responsible for internet or technology issues you encounter. Should our performer(s) encounter technology issues, we will endeavour to reschedule for later the same day.
A small travel fee is chargeable if your booking will take place in a location outside of our normal service areas (SO, SP10 and SP11 postcodes) at the rate of 25 pence per mile. The distance will be determined by Imaginacts Entertainment Ltd according to the venue address you provide us with.
The travel fee applies for every three characters booked, so for example, if you book four or five characters, the travel fee will apply twice.
Customer Cancellation Policy
All deposits are non-refundable (except in the case of Covid). If you need to change the date of your event, please try to do so as early as possible so we can schedule another date and time for your event (all new dates subject to availability). If cancelled less than 48 hours before the day of the booking, then the full booking fee is non-refundable.
Imaginacts Cancellation Policy
In the very rare case that Imaginacts Entertainment Ltd are unable to send your pre booked character to your event due to unforeseen circumstances, we will
1. contact you and mutually agree to send an alternative character to fulfil your booking to prevent a cancellation
2. should we be unable to supply an alternative character for your booking either because we have no availability or because we do not have an available character you deem suitable, your booking fee (including deposit) will be completely refunded
Our performers are there to entertain the children and not to manage any behavioural issues as this detracts the enjoyment of the children who are engaging appropriately. In order to provide the best service for the children as a group, it is your responsibility to manage any inappropriate or unsafe behaviour. We allow a maximum of 30 guests at any of our Meet & Greet, Celebration, and Jamboree packages. Our performers are not responsible for any children at an event and at least one Parent or Guardian must be in attendance for the duration of the booking. Our performers retain the right to leave the event if at any point they feel threatened, harassed or otherwise unsafe.
Imaginacts Entertainment Ltd may take photos and videos at events for our own promotional activities which may be used on our website and/or social media. We will always gain your agreement in advance if we plan to do this. We may use any photos and videos of your booking you send to us in the same way.
Accident or Damage Policy
Imaginacts Entertainment Ltd and/or our performers are not liable for any damages or injuries that may occur at any Event.
We reserve the right to charge you for any damage to our property including equipment, wigs and costumes caused by intentional or reckless behaviour by any of your guests.
We are not affiliated with any other companies and any character similarities or resemblance is purely coincidental.
