All bookings are subject to a 30% deposit, depending on the location, date, number of guests, and associated package. This deposit secures the booking, staff, mobile bar, preparation and associated services required for the event.

A written quotation does not place a tentative hold on your proposed date. The client has (7) days from the dated job quote to pay the minimum 30% deposit to secure the booking.

If the minimum 30% deposit has not been made within (7) days of the dated quote, Penny Lane Events van will delete the quotation, and a new inquiry submission will be required in the circumstance of the client wishing to pursue their original event inquiry.

Once a booking deposit has been paid, we will unfortunately not accept a significant reduction in guest numbers. We can accept group increases with an appropriate amount of notice given to us.
