Terms and Conditions: Entertainment Booth Hire

Payment terms

We require a deposit of £100 to secure our services for your chosen date. This is a non-refundable retainer.

Bookings will not be considered ‘confirmed’ until the deposit has been received by us AND the terms/conditions below have been signed and dated to establish a hire and service contract.

The remaining balance of your booking must be paid to us in full three weeks prior to the wedding/event date for the service to go ahead.

Service supplied/ our responsibilities

We agree to attend your event on the above date at the agreed starting time. A 3 hour service period will commence following a brief set-up period. Other service periods and costings are negotiable and dependent on the requirements of individual events.

We agree to provide the entertainment equipment in good working order, according to the package descriptions below:

Photo booth: Our custom-built camera box on tripod, including flash; selection of props.

Film booth: Large backdrop stand with white cloth screen; lights and camera on tripod; selection of props. Optional extra: ‘Green screen’ backdrop.

We agree to provide at least one Poppycock representative to set-up the equipment and either control (Film Booth) or monitor the appropriate use of (Photo Booth) our equipment. The attending representative will engage with and encourage guests as necessary in order to achieve good results for both entertainment purposes at the event and the resulting film footage/photos.

We reserve the right to deny inclusion to any guests who are deemed a threat to the safety of our equipment, staff or other attendees, including guests who appear intoxicated, difficult to control, or abusive.

Film Booth only: We agree to edit the resulting footage into an appropriate short film set to music. We agree to deliver the edited film to you via on-line media download site within 16 weeks of the date of the event. We may also choose to share the film on our own media sites- please inform us if this is something you would not be happy with.

Photo Booth only: The Photo Booth requires a stable wifi connection to operate. If this is not available at your venue then mobile network coverage needs to be sufficient in the area for us to use mobile data tethering. Please consider the availability of this when booking the Photo Booth or ask us to look into this for you.

The Photo Booth produces a digital album of photographs which upload automatically to a website (upload speed is dependent on the quality of internet connection available to us on the day). Individual photos are then available to download for free and guests are given a card containing the website details so that they can access the photos in their own time and by their own means. Albums exist on-line for two years and are open for public viewing and downloading. The album for your event can be made private upon advanced request. We may still choose to feature select photographs on our own media sites- please inform us if this is something you would not be happy with.

In the unlikely event that we cannot perform the services agreed upon; all fees paid by you will be refunded.

We will take the utmost care with respect to the filming, editing and delivery of your photos/footage, but in the event that circumstances arise that are beyond our control our liability is limited. Circumstances beyond our control include, but are not limited to: acts of nature, electrical power failures, strikes, labour disputes, riots, insurrections, civil disturbances, fires, flood, storms, explosions, war and governmental actions, non-performance of third parties, or loss or fluctuations of internet connectivity or mobile network coverage after a period of establishment.

Ownership and Liabilities of film footage

We reserve the right to use any photos/footage for promotional or any other purposes or public display. However, we will consider any requests for the restricted sharing of photos/footage on an individual basis, if these requests are clearly stated to us in writing.

The films/photos are produced for your personal, private, in-home use. You assume all liability for any form of copyright infringement and are responsible for any personal releases. Please be aware that copyright infringement for any commercial music featured in the films may be an issue if you are planning to share the films via on-line media sites.

Denial of service

Service will only be confirmed when all agreed pre-payments have been received by us. In the event of any balance remaining outstanding before the date of service, all our responsibilities to you are void until full payment has been received.

The availability of our equipment may be limited and reservations are made on a first come-first served basis and confirmed by the deposit and the signed contract.

We reserve the right to refuse our service to anyone at any time where we deem it is in our best interest on the basis of credit, past history, legitimacy of booking or lack of safety precaution.

Refunds and Cancellation

In the event of a booking cancellation by you, monies paid up until the point of cancellation will be non-refundable

In the event of any money being taken in error by us, this money will be refunded to you.
