COVID CANCELLATION POLICY: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and frequent, unexpected event cancellations we have made slight amendment to our cancellation policy. Clients needing to cancel a hire due to COVID-related event cancellations will receive a store credit to the value of the hire fee paid. The credit will be valid for one year from the date of issue. Refunds will not be given.
