COVID Policy Statement
Steppin’ Out Events, like all the businesses in the events sector, has been hit hard by snap lockdowns, capacity limitations and travel restrictions. While we make every endeavour to ensure our events go ahead on the listed date and time, sometimes due to COVID this is out of our control.
To our wonderful members, we can promise that you will never lose your money purchasing a ticket with Steppin’ Out Events. In thanks for your ongoing support, it is our priority to provide you with alternative options in these trying times, so you can still party on with us.
If an event you have purchased a ticket to is postponed due to COVID, or you are unable to attend the event due to COVID restrictions, the following options are available.
1. Attend the new date
If the event is rescheduled you can absolutely still attend! Your existing ticket can be transferred to the new date. When the new date becomes available, members who purchased tickets for the previous date will have first opportunity to secure their attendance, prior to the event going on sale to other members. An RSVP deadline is applicable with this option. Members will receive communication from Steppin’ Out advising of the new date and the RSVP deadline.
Ticket transfer to the new rescheduled date is not automatic so please let us know.
2. Ticket Credit
If the new date doesn’t suit, we will gladly arrange a Ticket Credit so you can attend one of our other exciting upcoming events. We have plenty being planned and in the pipeline! Keep up to date here.
Should there be a difference in ticket price for your next chosen event, the value of your old ticket can be used as a credit toward the ticket price for the new event. For example, if you purchased a $30 ticket to one of our regular events but wish to purchase a ticket for a more expensive ‘Feature Event’, you will receive $30 off the ticket.
3. Receive a Refund
If neither of the above options are suitable, a full refund of the ticket price is available.
To claim any of these options, kindly email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will facilitate the process for you.
There are a lot of moving parts to set in place for a night out like time off work, accommodation, outfit selection, hair and makeup… just to name a few. It’s the absolute worst having to notify members that an event has been postponed. We are as disappointed as you are.
Members, thank you for your understanding, patience and support during a difficult time.
