Three Rates: There are three prices shown for each workshop. As a guide, the top rate is for those whose income is equivalent to a decent full wage, the middle rate is for those whose income is equivalent to a part-time or low wage and the lower rate is for those whose income is equivalent to being unwaged and relying on benefits. Wages don’t always reflect financial circumstances so please choose whichever price feels right for your personal situation. NB. When there are only limited places left, you may not be able to buy a ticket at the rate you feel is appropriate to you. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org if there’s a problem.
Early Bird Discount: For each workshop, and for whichever rate you pay, there is a discount of approximately 20% if you book 4 weeks or more in advance. The discount price will automatically show in the pricing box when you book for a workshop in time.
NVN Members: There is a further 10% discount (Half-Day and Full-day workshops only) for members of the Natural Voice Network. To do this either: contact Faith to ask for a 10% voucher for the workshop you want to attend (book it in the usual way once you have the voucher), or: book for the workshop first, but select the option to pay by BACS or cheque; let Faith know (you can always put this under special requirements when booking) then just pay the amount minus 10% by BACS or cheque.

The easiest way to pay is via the website, using a secure card payment method. This method alerts Singing for Larks that your payment has been made and completes the transaction, securing your place. If you prefer to pay by bank transfer or cheque, please be aware that your place will only be secure once you’ve received an acknowledgement that Singing for Larks has received your payment.
For all Singing for Larks workshop bookings there is now an admin fee (£6 for Full-Days and £4 for Half-Days) which is non-returnable and (usually) non-transferable, unless the workshop is cancelled or the date or location is changed, making it impossible for you to attend. In this case, your total fee will be refunded or you will be given store credit (in your Singing for Larks online account) for the full amount.
If you are unable to attend a Full-Day or Half-Day workshop for any other reason…
If you find somebody to take your place: Simply inform Singing for Larks of the change of details. There will be no additional fee.
If you give at least 28 days notice, you have a choice: EITHER: If you’d like a refund, Singing for Larks will retain the admin fee and refund the remainder. OR: If you’re happy for your fee to be transferred to a future workshop, the full amount (including admin fee) will be set up as store credit in your Singing for Larks online account.
If you give less than 28 days notice and Singing for Larks manages to find someone to take your place: Singing for Larks will retain your admin fee. The remainder of your payment will be set up as store credit in your Singing for Larks online account.
If you give less than 28 days notice and nobody is found to take your place: Singing for Larks will retain your full payment.
If Faith Watson is unable to lead a workshop: Singing for Larks will aim to find a replacement leader so the workshop can go ahead. If you choose not to attend, your rights are as above.
