Terms & Policies

 

booking POLICY:

To book a CPW event, find the event you are interested in attending on the ‘upcoming events’ page. After making any enquiries about the event that you would like to make, add the deposit(s) for the event to your cart and go to the checkout page. At checkout you will be asked to fill in the booking form. Once you have paid your deposit you will receive an email from the event organiser informing you that your place has been secured. Your final bill, which will take into account your deposit and any discounts or bursaries, will be sent you by email after we receive your deposit and should be paid four weeks prior to the event via BACS.

Further details about booking

  • Bookings are not confirmed until we have received your deposit payment.

  • Parents and carers may each bring one additional child who is not of their own immediate family (to all-age events).

  • Pets cannot be accommodated.

  • Smoking is not allowed in the buildings and grounds of the Centres we use.

  • We try to ensure that centres are fully accessible, but please discuss specific needs (such as mobility or hearing) with the organiser.

CANCELLATION POLICY:

Unable to attend

In the event that you are unable to attend an event, please let the organiser know at least four weeks prior to the start of the event.
