Bookings for London & South Events 

  • The closing date for bookings is 1 September 2023. Please fill in the form by this date. We recommend that you make a note of your preferences to avoid double booking, cancellations, and unnecessary extra work for our volunteers. 
  • For workshops with limited places we may need to operate a lottery system to allocate spots fairly. 
  • You will be notified of any places that you successfully obtain after the date listed above and will then be asked for payment. 
  • Zoom event log-in details will be sent after places have been allocated. 
  • Payment is by bank transfer. Bank details will be sent along with the notice of a successful place. Please pay promptly when notified you have a place or it may be passed along to the next person on the waitlist. This is to ensure full attendance and benefit for the highest number of members. 
  • Refunds are not available 2 weeks before an event as we may not be able to fill the place. 

Thank you for understanding.
