Workshop Terms & Conditions

Workshop terms and conditions

We charge a very low space hire fee for £11.25 per hour (+ VAT). This is very cheap for a large, city centre workshop venue.  We offer it at this price to ensure that creative facilitators get the most out of their workshops and have the opportunity to develop their practice in a prime, accessible location.  To be able to offer our workshops at this price, we have set out these terms and conditions to make sure we are protected.

  1. You must pay your workshop hire cost, in full at least 2 weeks before the scheduled workshop date. We have found that this reduces the amount of cancellations as you are committed to the session. It allows us 2 weeks to rebook another workshop should you cancel.
