BBB Tickets on sale soon

 

Display and Play

This year at BBB we have been asking around and attending a few events and have decided to adopt a different structure for our classes. We are going to call this “Display and Play” classes. Like at other events you will get a short demo of what is on offer to learn before you then head to the class of your choice. This means that you just need to purchase a lead or follow ticket and that is all!

Invitational Track

For the first time we are trying an invitational track. If you have not been contacted about this track and feel it is where you belong, please contact us at bbb@swingpatrol.co.uk and discuss this with us.

How do we decide who to invite?

To find the list of folk to be included in this track we will be speaking to local scene leaders and teachers for recommendations. Please feel free to contact us with any suggestions or recommendations.

Payment Plan Tickets

IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING THIS OPTION PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY

This year you can choose whichever payment plan suites you best. You can choose to pay in 4, 3 or 2 parts. These payment option will be offered on full weekend and workshop only tickets. The duration of the plan available to you will depend on when you register.

You will pay the first instalment when you register and shortly after you will receive an email allowing you to set up an automatic payment system through Go Cardless.

You will have 7 days to get your payment plan in place.

If you choose to cancel your ticket the cancellation policies listed below will apply on the full price of the ticket.

The dreaded wait list

This year there will be a limited number of early bird passes available once these are gone EVERYONE will have to purchase a wait listed ticket – THAT’S RIGHT EVERYONE INCLUDING LEADS!

At the end of each week we will then confirm as many of the wait listed folks as we possibly can to keep an even(ish) balance of leads and follows for the classes.

If in the unlikely event we cannot find you a confirmed place at the festival then we will refund your ticket cost. This will not be done until AFTER the festival when we are sure you could not get a place. If you choose to cancel prior to this time the cancellation policy below will apply.

The very best way someone can get themselves off the wait list is to find another dancer to sign up and purchase themselves a Double (Lead/Follow) pass.

If you have already registered and then find a registration buddy – just email us at bbb@swingpatrol.co.uk and we’ll sort it out for you.

Cancellation policy

  • All registrations that are cancelled up to and including 30 June will receive a 75% refund less any booking fees.
  • Any registration cancelled between 1 July and 30 September will receive a 50% refund less any booking fees. We suggest that the best thing you can do is try and sell your ticket – a great place to do this is on Facebook.
  • Any registration cancelled on or after 1 October will not receive a refund. We suggest that the best thing you can do is try and sell your ticket – a great place to do this is on Facebook.

Volunteer cancellation policy

Anyone who wishes to volunteer should not purchase any kind of pass that includes the social events.

Pass swapping and transfers

It is possible to sell your pass if for some reason you cannot make it to the festival. We suggest the best way to do this is via Facebook. Feel free to post it on any of the BBB groups, events or walls.

You can request a name change for a pass or a change of track, from the day the ticket sales open until 20 October. After 20 Oct we won’t be taking any track changes however you can still sell your ticket to someone else as as they can just use your name at check in. We don’t check ID 😉

Sharing or splitting a pass

It is not possible to share or split a pass with another dancer. It is not possible for one person to do some events and workshops while another person does the remaining events or workshops. There are a number of reasons for this:

  • It is not possible for us to keep track of this.
  • Single day or individual events are a different price.
  • It is important for us to keep the workshop ratios balanced

The point of a full pass is that the dancer who purchases a pass to attend the whole weekend gets a discount for their full commitment to the whole festival.

Terms & Conditions

By registering for BBB you are agreeing to the following:

The rule!

Many of the BBB venues are fully licensed. Please do NOT bring any alcohol into these venues unless we have advised otherwise. There has been trouble with people doing this in the past and it has caused the organisers a whole world of hurt. Bags will be checked for alcohol and any found will be confiscated and drunk by the organisers after the festival. You may also not be permitted entry! Please be aware that this behaviour makes the venues VERY ANGRY and they won’t have us back!

Safe Spaces Directive

Please see our Safe Spaces Directive for BBB here.

Being rude to our staff and volunteers

DON’T DO IT. Our team are working hard to make sure you have a wonderful weekend making some amazing memories and providing a fun and safe place to be. Please don’t be rude to our team either in person or via social media. BBB has a ZERO tolerance policy on this issue. You WILL  be asked to leave and you won’t be permitted back to any workshops or parties and you WON’T be given any refund. It is also possible you won’t be allowed back in future years.
