You (“The Renter”) understand this is a tentative booking and the event rental and catering, if applicable, are not confirmed until the contract is signed. The Renter shall not make any alterations, additions, or improvements to the premises without the prior written consent of the Centre for the Arts. The Renter shall comply with all rules, regulations, ordinances, codes, and laws of all governmental authorities having jurisdiction over the premises. The Renter shall not sublet or assign the premises nor allow any other person or business to use or occupy the premises without the prior written consent of the Centre for the Arts, which consent may not be unreasonably withheld. At the end of the term of this rental agreement, the Renter shall surrender and deliver up the premises in the same condition.
Please be courteous and advise as soon as possible if you need to make a change to your booking. Any cancellation less than 24 hours prior to the start of your event will result in a fee equivalent to 25% of your initial estimate plus the full cost for any additional items, A/V setup, linens, etc.
The Centre for the Arts follows the same cancellation policy as the Cape Breton Regional Municipality’s Transit Cape Breton services. If the municipal bus service is not operating due to inclement weather, the Centre is closed to the public. Building closures to the public will be posted on the Centre’s social media.
Special requests are subject to an additional charge based on need and availability (A/V setup, additional tables & chairs, linens, etc.)
All rates are subject to HST. Registered Not-For-Profits, registered Charities, and Centre tenants are granted a discount on all rates (before HST). Proof of Not-For-Profit or Charitable status is required when booking.
The Centre for the Arts follows and requires that all renters, visitors, and guests to the Centre follow Nova Scotia Public Health COVID-19 protocols. This includes physical distancing, masking, and handwashing/sanitizing requirements. Renters are responsible for ensuring that their guests, attendees, and visitors always abide by these protocols in all parts of the building.
Upon default in any term or condition of this Rental Agreement, the Centre for the Arts shall have the right to undertake any or all other remedies permitted by Law.
Surfaces will be sanitized prior to the beginning of the event. All event organizers and attendants are asked to abide by physical distancing, hand hygiene, and respiratory etiquette policies posted within the facility. Should any event attendant feel unwell/experience symptoms of COVID-19 the day of the event they must not enter the building and are directed to call 811 to report symptoms. Should any event attendant begin to feel unwell during the event, they are asked to leave immediately. Please ask attendants to wear masks when catering staff are present in the room.
Please notify us if you would like food items individually plated. For buffet service, hand sanitizer will be set up at the beginning and end of the buffet table. Please remain seated until our catering staff has completed their event set-up. Please place dirty dishes in the bus bins provided, not on the banquet table.
