2.  Each text message will be charged at £10 plus a standard rate text (based on your service provider rates).

3.  Only one entry place can be reserved from any telephone number. If we receive more than one text message from the same number, no additional entry place shall be reserved but you (or the sender, if the message is sent on your behalf) may still be charged for the additional message(s) at the relevant standard network rate.

4.  Once we have received a text message from you or on your behalf as set out above, we will send a message to that number confirming that your payment has been received. Once we have completed processing your entry we shall subsequently send you an email confirming your place at the Event using the email address you have previously provided to us.
