Allergies and dietary restrictions:
We request dietary/allergy restrictions a week before the class is due to take place. Please also leave a note when booking. Most but not all classes can be adapted for vegetarians.
Once payment is confirmed you’ll receive an online ‘ticket’. A week before the class we will contact you requesting allergy/dietary restriction information and providing advice on parking if you need this. There is usually food left over at the end of the session so please don’t forget to bring take-home boxes.
