Where mentioned, the “Artiste” is Brian Shaw or an act managed by or represented by the Brian Shaw Entertainments Group* and the “Booker” is the venue.

1.1 Payment of the agreed fee can be made in advance or by cash on the day of the performance. Payment can also be made by cheque or BACS within 30 days of the performance date. Invoices can be sent in advance on request if that helps you to meet the payment terms.
On the occasion that payment is not made on time, the invoice total will be subject to a £40 late payment fee and Statutory Interest Rates.
If there is a breach of contract regarding the agreed payment terms, the artiste reserves the right to cancel the performance, and the invoice will be due subject to the 30 day terms unless an expenses agreement is made with the artiste at the time.
This applies to all bookings except “Seasonal” and “Specialist” shows (see 2.2 for details).
2.1 Notice of a show cancellation must be given at least 7 days before the performance date. Verbal bookings will be followed up in writing. Non-reply of this confirmation does not constitute a cancellation.
Cancellation made with less than 7 days notice will requite the invoice amount to be paid in full. Exceptional circumstances such as force majeure, death or sickness in the venue may waiver the invoice charge, but this is at the artiste’s discretion. If circumstances require a cancellation, then the option of a rebooking is available within 30 days of the original booking date subject to the artistes availability. The booker may also be liable to pay the artiste’s travel expenses if the cancellation occurs once the artiste has already started their journey to the venue.
These cancellation terms also include the event of a double booking and booking errors made by the booker. i.e. wrong date or time etc.
If the artiste needs to cancel. We endeavour to provide as much notice as possible, reschedule where appropriate and/or find a replacement artiste or group where necessary. If we are unable to reschedule or find a replacement, then any payment made in advance will be fully reimbursed.
2.2 Seasonal and specialist shows.
These types of bookings are taken up to a year in advance and therefore future potential bookings are turned away as these bookings are held for several months or more and other bookings can’t be taken. These bookings may also involve complex planning, excessive travelling and occasional booking of accommodation and therefore different cancellation rules apply.
Seasonal and specialist shows include:
New Year Shows
October tour of Yorkshire
St George’s Day
Weekend bookings such as air shows and county fairs
Once the original booking is made you have up to 14 days to cancel. After 14 days from booking, all seasonal and specialist bookings become non-cancellable under any circumstances and payment will be due regardless. Any deviation from this would be at the discretion of the artiste under exceptional circumstances only.
If the artiste needs to cancel. We endeavour to provide as much notice as possible, reschedule where appropriate and/or find a replacement artiste where necessary. If we are unable to reschedule or find a replacement, then any payment made in advance will be fully reimbursed.
The Artiste will provide Public Liability Insurance up to the value of £10,000,000 for all acts except Puttin’ on the Blitz! Where the Public Liability Insurance is for £5,000,000.
The client assumes liability and cost if equipment owned by the artiste is damaged by the client and/or guests. The artist reserves the right to deny anyone access to property owned by our company.
The artiste and/or all agents are released from any damages/litigation due to client, guests and any other personnel or properties.
The artiste will provide all necessary equipment to put on a show unless it is agreed that the artiste will be using equipment provided by the venue. The venue must provide an electrical outlet if the artiste is using their own equipment.
The artiste will be paid for any parking costs (if applicable) at the venue on the day of the event and will be reimbursed by the client. If any proportion of the event is outside during the day, client or venue will supply some form of shade (tent, gazebo). The artiste/s will require an electrical outlet. Gratuities are made at the sole discretion of the client.
Additional charges may apply for excessive moving of equipment from the originally designated set up area to difficult load-in due to stairs, lifts and/or long distances between loading and party areas.
