Q: Can you invoice me please?
A: Unfortunately due to the short timescales involved and the outlay of expenses required to run the course, guarenteed payment is needed in advance. Therefore invoice payment is unavailable. Your bursar should be able to process your credit card payment.

Q: Can I have a receipt please?
A: Yes, you will receive an email receipt from Eventbrite, the ticket sales service you are currently looking at. If you need any other paper work I will be happy to arrange this for you on the day, just ask.

Q: Can I send a colleague in my place?
A: Yes please do; however one ticket accommodates one member of staff. If more than one person attends from your school, they will each need a separate ticket. Capacity is strictly limited to please be sure everyone has booked in advance.

Q: I need to cancel, can I get a refund?

A: If your place can be filled either by a replacement of yours, or from our waiting list, yes a refund will be provided once the replacement booking has gone through. If the place cannot be filled, £60 per ticket will be refunded. A £20 fee will be retained to cover overheads.
