the small print


Please check the page relevant to any courses that I organise myself for my policy on cancellations and refunds. Generally the latter are not available on residential courses as I have contractual and financial commitments to the venues which don’t change if you withdraw, although clearly if I have to cancel the course for personal reasons you will be refunded. NB THIS LATTER DOES NOT APPLY TO A GLOBAL EVENT – AN ‘ACT OF GOD’ – OUT OF MY CONTROL, HOWEVER. Examples of this might be extreme weather, widespread transport strikes, or a virus pandemic. I advise travel insurance.

Your signing up for a course is taken as an acceptance of these conditions.

The 2020 coronavirus pandemic is an example of an ‘act of God’ for which, not being God, I cannot take responsibility. In this case, I have offered refunds of the balance, but not the deposits, to all the participants. Any such future events will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
