NEW: Got questions about energy? Put them to Gary and Andrew from MSE's Utilities team during our energy-themed 'Ask An Expert' event. Check back here from Tuesday 9 August, 12pm
morning, we have paid a deposit of over £200 for a prom dress. However due to COVID19 school proms will more than likely not take place. The school has said that it may have a prom but only when it is safe. It could be December. The dress we are getting has not been altered nor made to measure or anything like that. It is just one that fitted my daughter from a prom dress shop. My question is do we have the right not to buy AND get our deposit back. As if there was a prom she would go but there is no longer going to be one?

    The shop are still supplying the dress that you ordered, so you need to check their cancellation terms. 

    At the very least, you should expect to lose the deposit.
