Residential Workshops - Prices, Payment & Booking Conditions

This information applies to residential workshops organised by Singing for Larks and sold through this website. For prices, payment and booking conditions for workshops at Dillington House, go direct to the Dillington House website.

For Singing for Larks residential workshops:

PRICES:

There are several different prices for each residential workshop, depending on the type of bedroom you choose (single, twin, double, 3+ beds or non-resident), occupancy (shared or single) and the bathroom facilities (en-suite, private or shared). The price for each type of room shows in the drop down box for each workshop.

The prices shown are per room so, for example, if you want a twin room for 2 people, then the price covers both people. (NB. This is a change from the previous Singing for Larks website).

There is an early bird discount if you pay the full amount 10 weeks or more in advance. The discount price will show automatically when you book for a workshop in time.

PAYMENT:

You are asked to pay the full amount at the website checkout, 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.

If you prefer to pay a deposit of £50 initially, you’ll need to select the option to pay by bank transfer or cheque. It is then your responsibility to pay the balance at least 10 weeks before the start of the workshop (for the early bird discount price) or 4 weeks before the start of the workshop (for the full price). Please note, Singing for Larks is not able to send a reminder when your balance is due and, if you haven’t paid the balance by 4 weeks before the start of the workshop, Singing for Larks will assume that you no longer want your place.

BOOKING CONDITIONS:

For all residential workshop bookings there is a £10 admin fee which is non-returnable and non-transferable unless the workshop is cancelled or the date or location is changed, making it impossible for you to attend.

If you are unable to attend a residential workshop for any other reason:

  • Singing for Larks will only be able to refund some money under certain circumstances (see below) so you may wish to take out travel insurance.

If you give more at least 10 weeks notice:

  • Singing for Larks will retain the £10 admin fee.
  • £40 of your payment is transferrable and will be set up as store credit in your Singing for Larks online account

  • £100 of your payment is transferrable and will be set up as store credit in your Singing for Larks online account
  • Singing for Larks will refund the remainder of your payment.

If you give less than 4 weeks notice but you find somebody to take your place:

  • Your place can simply be transferred to the new person, with no additional fee, as long as you sort out any exchange of money and all other details remain the same.
  • If some details need amending (room / personal requirements etc) there will be a £10 admin fee.

If you give less than 4 weeks notice and Singing for Larks manages to find someone to take your place:

  • Singing for Larks will retain £50 (£10 admin fee plus £40 late cancellation fee)
  • £100 of your payment is transferrable and will be set up as store credit in your Singing for Larks online account
