What happens if the workshop leader/practitioner running the workshop cancels?
It is very unlikely for a workshop leader/practitioner to cancel, however, due to the nature of this business it could happen. In the event that the workshop leader/practitioner can no longer do the workshop with notice, we will do our very best to bring in another workshop leader/practitioner or change the date. Furthermore, in this situation you will have the opportunity to still attend the workshop or cancel and receive points for a future workshop, click here to find out all about our points scheme. If we do end up cancelling the workshop at the very last minute which is even more unlikely, then it is in our obligation to organise a refund. Please bear in mind that refunds can take up to 30 days.
