Course cancellation & refund policy

If you cancel

If you change your mind within 14 days of booking you are entitled to a full refund according to the Consumer Credit Act.
If you wish to cancel your booking at any time more than 2 weeks prior to the date of the workshop, your fee will be refunded minus a £5.00 administration charge, alternatively you can transfer the full fee to something else without penalty.
If you change your mind within 2 weeks of the start of the workshop, no refunds or transfers can be made but will be more than happy to transfer your full fee to any other workshop (if places are available) or you are free to send a substitute.

If we cancel

If for any reason, it is necessary to cancel a workshop or course, all students will be notified immediately. Students will have the opportunity of a full refund or transfer their payment to another available course on the grounds that there are still spaces available.

We aim to deliver all courses as promoted on this website. Unfortunately courses may be cancelled, or changed, if enrolments are too low or in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
