Dietary requirements
Please ensure that you check with all members of your party regarding food allergies, intolerances, and dietary requirements prior to booking tickets. 
With regards to food allergies, intolerances and specific dietary requirements, customers are advised to speak to a member of staff at the host venue for the specific foodie experience that you are interested in for more information. Ideally this should be done before purchasing tickets, or for ticket holders at least 48 hours before the event.

Tickets and seating 
We are thrilled to bring you this programme of experiences celebrating all that is best about food in Ards and North Down. 

To allow for the experience to be as best as possible for all, under current restrictions, the following is necessary with regards to ticket sales.

We are operating a bubble system. You will be able to buy a bubble that will hold up to a maximum of two, four or six people. Unfortunately, we cannot change the size of the bubbles and the price per bubble is fixed. For example, if you are a party of three, you can book a bubble of four or six people at the set price and either ask a friend/friends to be part of your bubble or have a lower number in the bubble.

Bubble locations will be allocated by the venue you are attending. If you book more than one bubble (for example on behalf of someone else), please be advised that your separate bubbles may not be located together.
When booking a bubble, you must include all individuals in your bubble, it is not possible to book additional tickets to add to your bubble or bring more people than you have booked a bubble for.
Due to social distancing and safety requirements, you must stay in your bubble for the duration of the experience. You must not move between bubbles.

We want to ensure all experiences operate to the safety of customers and staff and as such all regulations surrounding covid as per NI Executive direction must be adhered to at the date and time of the experience regarding indoor dining venues. For the latest regulations and guidance for hospitality from NI Executive check the NI Direct website.

It is imperative that if you have any symptoms of Covid19, have tested positive for Covid19, or have been in recent contact with anyone who has tested positive, you do not attend the experience.

Please note that we will be constantly monitoring and reviewing these guidelines, and will adapt them if we feel it is necessary – or if we are required to do so by law. 

No refunds or exchanges.

All experiences are on a ticket only basis. Once purchased, tickets cannot be refunded or exchanged unless an experience is cancelled by the organiser (e.g. in the case of extreme weather).

Refund cheques will normally be posted within ten working days of the original event date.
