Fixed chargeable time
The chargeable time is from the agreed start time to the agreed end time, including appropriate breaks. If your event starts later than the agreed start time, we still charge you from the agreed start time.
Flexible chargeable time
If you are not sure of the exact end time when you book us, we are happy to play on for extra time, charging you as above.
We ask for a non-returnable deposit of £100 to confirm your booking. We will send you two copies of our booking form and we ask you to sign and return one copy with your deposit.
Paying the balance
For a fixed booking this is payable either before or on the day of the event. For a flexible booking it is payable after the day of the event, on receipt of an invoice.
Travel and set up
We do not charge for travel costs within approximately 60 miles of Oxford, or for the half hour set up time which we always allow.
An individual quote will be given if the booking is outside our normal travel area, or if we are required to play for two sessions with a lengthy gap in the middle.
An additional charge of £30 is made if you have a special request for a piece of music which is not on our repertoire list.
