Finance Process 

For events with paying tickets vended through the Big Green Week website. The finance process is as follows:

  1. When an attendee purchases a costed ticket through the Big Green Week website, our payment provider, Paypal, applies a 1.4% + 20p administration fee per transaction (not per ticket). This fee is levied onto attendees, appearing as an additional cost in the checkout stages of the purchase. The fee will not be deducted from event host ticket revenue.
  2. We recoup and retain ticket revenue as we sell tickets for your event. This money is stored securely in the Big Green Week bank account. BGW retain ticket revenue until after the event has taken place. This ensures that we are able to refund attendees in the event that a paying event is cancelled.

Refunds & Cancellations

  1. In the event that a paying event is cancelled, we will refund all event attendees the full ticket price, not the

In the event that a paying Big Green Week event vended through the Big Green Week website is cancelled with prior notice (more than one hour prior to event), we will refund all ticket holders for that event the full ticket price, excluding the 1.4% + 20p payment provider administration fee. We will not refund ticket holders if the event is cancelled once it has started.

Third Party (Event Hosts) Liability

Event organisers are responsible for all financial and legal aspects of contracts/bookings for your event, as well as ensuring you have applied for any required permissions, event licenses and health and safety planning and insurances, etc.

In addition, while nothing in this document limits our liability for losses which cannot be legally excluded by Big Green Week, we shall not be liable to any organising partner or any other party with whom we contract (either verbally or in writing), whether in contract, tort (including negligence), for breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, arising under or in connection with this agreement for loss of profits, loss of sales or business, loss of agreements or contracts, loss of anticipated savings, loss of or damage to goodwill, loss of use or corruption of software, data or information, any indirect or consequential loss whatsoever.

As part of due diligence, we recommend all event hosts complete a risk assessment for their event and an event management plan. Event organisers are advised that they are liable for any injury to persons at your event, or damage to property. Event hosts are also responsible for identifying and mitigating any risks associated with your event.

Please note, event hosts are also advised the following:

It is good practice to begin an event, or provide in pre-event comms, a summary of your housekeeping: state whether you expect any fire drills to take place, where bathrooms and fire exits are located and where the evacuation point is in the event of an emergency. As event organiser, it is your responsibility to prevent and mitigate all risks at your event, including fire. If you are renting a venue, the venue staff should give you a fire safety induction prior to the event, provide details of maximum capacity and a summary of facilities and their location. It is recommended that a suitably trained first-aider be present at your event.
