Sorted Food will notify you by email if we accept your order. No order will be accepted until we have received the full price of the tickets that you order. By accepting your order we bring into existence a binding contract between us.

Full payment for the Event(s) will be taken at the time of making a booking. We accept payment with all major debit and credit cards.
