For studio and outdoor-based courses a non returnable deposit of £50.00 inc VAT per person per day should accompany the completed booking form. Final payment should be made no later than four weeks prior to the course commencement . I do not send a reminder or an invoice so please make a note of the due date in your diary. Non-payment of the final balance will not be assumed to imply cancellation. Failure to attend a course will incur cancellation charges as shown below. The best way to guarantee a place is to pay via the online Courses page.
Cancellations must be made in writing to me via email - firstname.lastname@example.org
For courses tutored by me written cancellations received between 28 and 14 days prior to the course date, the deposit will be forfeit but the balance will be refunded provided this has been received by me. It is regretted that no refund can be made in respect of bookings cancelled 14 days (or less) prior to commencement of a course.
Cancellation of Courses:
I reserve the right to cancel any course should it become necessary to do so. I will notify you as soon as possible and you may then transfer to another course if you wish, depending on availability. Deposits/balances will be refunded in full if you prefer to withdraw your bookings. I am liable only for any monies you have paid to me at the time of cancellation.
Please note that l cannot accept liability or pay compensation where the performance or fulfilment of our contractual obligations is prevented or affected by reason of circumstances amounting to 'force majeur'.
Circumstances amounting to force majeur include any event which I could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid such as war, or threat of war, civil strife, riot, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, sickness, bad weather and acts of any Government or public authority and all similar events which are beyond my control.
