General Information and Cancellation Policy

Armagh Georgian Weekend General Information and Cancellation Policy

Armagh Georgian Weekend is a series of unique experiences, which celebrate the many different aspects of Georgian Armagh including buildings, history and heritage.  We work closely and in partnership with local attractions, businesses and venues to deliver the events.  Your safety is our number one priority.  Please note that masks must be worn for any event which takes place indoors.  Any events cancelled by organiser, whatever the circumstances, will be fully refundable.  We will contact you as soon as we know an event has been cancelled and will refund your full ticket price plus any booking fees, no quibbles.  Please note that face coverings must be worn at some of our activities.  You will be advised at each venue accordingly.

During these unprecedented times, we understand that there are may be exceptional circumstances (e.g. being required to self-isolate or quarantine in accordance with Test, Track & Trace) which may lead to you being unable to attend.  For this reason we have formulated a cancellation policy designed to be fair both to the customer and the event organisers.

From the moment we confirm any event we already have incurred an expense and the closer to the date of the event the more expenses rise.

Policy

First of all, if you cannot attend then please do remember that you have the option of passing on / selling your tickets to friends or family.  If you do need to cancel, please email us at georgianarmagh@armaghbanbridgecraigavon.gov.uk as soon as possible to let us know.

Cancellations can only be accepted through this email address.  From the time of booking up until 24 hours before the event, or on or after the event, we will not be able to offer you a refund.  Booking confirmations will also be forwarded providing information about the event.

Please email georgianarmagh@armaghbanbridgecraigavon.gov.uk if you have any event related enquiries.
