Refund Policy

Lost or forgotten wristbands and tickets

There will be no refunds or replacements for tickets that you have lost or forgotten to bring with you. Once we send your tickets via email, they are your responsibility. You need to keep them safe and bring them with you to gain entry. If you arrive at an entry point without your ticket(s) you will be need to purchase more (if available) and no retrospective refund will be given, even if you return your unused ticket after the event has taken place.


Wristbands and event tickets are non-refundable except in exceptional circumstances. If an event is cancelled by the Festival, we will refund the face value of the ticket. Please note, if an event being cancelled or postponed, Abergavenny Food Festival cannot be held responsible for any costs incurred by the customer for travel, accommodation or any other related service.


Wristbands ordered through this site will be sent through Royal Mail to the address you have provided when placing your order. There is no standard dispatch time for tickets ordered through this site. However, we always send a dispatch email, to let you know your order is on its way. We are not responsible for orders lost in the post, however if you do not receive your order, we will send you a claim form to fill out and return to us, which will enable us to make a claim. As this can take many weeks to conclude, you will need to purchase replacement tickets to use on the day and if the claim is successful, we will refund the face value price of the lost wristbands.

If we receive an order back from Royal Mail marked as ‘addressee unknown’, we will not resend to this address. We will endeavour to contact you, to inform you where you can collect your tickets on the day.

If it becomes impractical to post tickets out due to proximity of an event or circumstances beyond Abergavenny Food Festival’s control, we reserve the right to make the tickets available for collection at the Festival and will inform you accordingly. It is your responsibility to pick up your tickets before the agreed collection point closes.

Although Abergavenny Food Festival will use reasonable endeavours to indicate any age or other restrictions that apply to events, it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that they are eligible for entry to the event that they are purchasing tickets for.
