Terms and Conditions

Programs are available for groups of all ages, 4 years old and older.* Minimum group size must be 10, maximum 32 people except by special arrangement. Groups numbering 18 or more are considered "double groups" and will be split into two equal parts for program and Tea. Please let us know when you reserve if you will be a "double group", so additional staff may be scheduled. Bookings are available weekends, mornings, and afternoons, at 10 AM, 1 PM and 4 PM (or evening, subject to availability). A deposit of $50 is due within 7 days of the booking to hold reservations. Deposits are nonrefundable and non transferable. A list of costume sizes and final payment are due 10 days before visit.

Any balance past due on the day of the program must be paid in full, based on the numbers received in the costume list, and any subsequent additions, before the program can begin. There is no refund for no-shows, whether it be one guest or an entire group.

The Inn reserves the right to modify a program to best fit the needs of a group. Changes may be made to a program because a group arrives late, is a large or double group, has special physical or dietary needs, or who's behavior is deemed difficult by staff members, or for circumstances beyond the control of the Inn.

*infants, toddlers, and children under age 4 are not admitted.

Weather Rescheduling Policy

umbrellasThe weather rescheduling policy for Victorian Pastimes is consistent with other theaters and entertainment businesses in the Capitol District. Programs are only rescheduled for severe weather conditions. Due to fluctuations in weather forecasting no program can be rescheduled earlier than 2 hours before the groups departure time from their home meeting point.

Though weather conditions are not always ideal, and we do not wish groups to travel in dangerous conditions, we do expect a good faith effort on every group to attend their scheduled program time. Groups that qualify for rescheduling are placed in the first available "like-time slot".
