If nobody is home to sign for them, please keep an eye out for a red card through your door. It is your responsibility to retrieve your delivery from the delivery office if you receive a red card, or to rearrange re-delivery. Please put on your wristbands prior to arrival at the venue, and keep them on all day.
Q) Why haven’t my wristbands haven’t arrived yet?
A) All Early Bird Wristbands have until 2 days prior to the event to arrive. Please do not contact us before that unless you desperately want them to arrive by a certain date to be given as a Christmas / Birthday (etc.) present to someone - in which case we will try to be accommodating to get the tickets to you before the special day.
Generally we do not send wristbands out more than 2 months prior to an event unless specifically requested to do so.
Q) It’s very close to the event date and my tickets still haven’t arrived. What do I do?
A) If you have not received your wristbands by 2 days prior to the event, please contact us via email on or telephone 07510551291 (lines are open 9am-5pm)
All missing wristbands MUST be reported by not later than 10pm 2 days prior to the event so that we can track them. So if an event takes place on a Saturday, you have until 10pm Thursday to let us know your wristbands haven’t arrived. If an event takes place on a Sunday, you have until 10pm Friday to let us know your wristbands haven’t arrived.
Q) If my wristbands didn’t show up, and I didn’t report them to you as not having arrived, can I still get into the event via Fast Track if I bring a PayPal receipt?
A) No. You must contact us to let us know they didn’t arrive in the post. We will not accept PayPal receipts on the door. If you arrive without any wristbands and you did not contact us to let us know that your wristbands didn’t arrive, you will have to queue and purchase more wristbands on the door.

if you have accepted a damaged or opened envelope.
