The contact form was completely redesigned with the new website launch to make it easy to use without allowing malicious web code or spam to be sent. All information entered is validated and error checked, a majority of these checks are "as you type". There are certain errors which may prevent you sending a message for example: invalid e-mail. All the details stored in the contact form can be saved in a cookie to save time later by clicking the checkbox Remember Form.
Supply your details
You must supply your name and a valid e-mail (and confirm it). Other details cannot have an error (ie: abc as a phone number) or you will be unable to continue sending a message.
If you are enquiring about an event you have already sent information about please use Other Message tp contact the sales department.
Please supply as many details as possible about your event. If you wish to use information that you have previously entered into The CRATE please select the checkbox under Risk Assessmenst.
The more information that you provide the quicker we will be able to supply you with a quote. Once there is enough information, it normally takes two working days to have a quote ready. The
MINIMUM information required to supply an accurate quote is: WHAT is happening (preferably with risk assesment details and/or staffing levels), WHEN it is happening and WHERE it is happening (accurate location, preferably with a postcode). Without these we will be unable to provide a quote. Risk Assessments

The message box uses "as you type" spam detection for both spam words and spam phrases with score weighting. The percentage of spam may go up and down as you type your message. Once possible spam goes above a certain level the traffic light will go amber. If the percentage goes beyond 100% the submit button will be locked out.
It was decided to employ a degree of anti spam on the new contact form as the previous website at it's worst was getting over two hundred spam messages per day.
