Payment in Instalments

We are offering the chance to purchase your ticket to the retreat in 2 instalments of £100. Purchase by instalment is only on offer until 15 March 2014. BOTH instalments have to be purchased by this date in order to be valid. We will be unable to refund any payments that are incomplete by 15 March 2014.

Cancellation Policy

We have reviewed our cancellation policy as we know that life can sometimes just happen:

Ticket cancellation by 1 February 2014 – 100% refund
Ticket cancellation between 1 February and 15 March 2014 – 50% refund
Ticket cancellation between 15 March and 15 April 2014 – 25% refund
Ticket cancellation between 15 April and 18 July 2014 – unfortunately we will no longer be able to refund your ticket

You may however transfer your ticket at any time to another person. (Instalment payments are non-transferable.) To transfer your ticket to a different person contact us at customerservice@fatquarterly.com and let us know the full name and email address of the person taking your ticket.

If a ticket is transferred before class allocations then the new recipient of the ticket will be able to choose classes.

If a ticket is transferred after class allocations then the new recipient of the ticket will be unable to choose classes and will be automatically assigned those of the previous owner.

Class Sign Ups

The class sign ups will open up on 15 May 2014. We do not assign classes on a first come first served basis but rather try to make sure everyone gets classes from within their top choices. The allocation of classes takes some time but we get class lists out as soon as we can.

If you wish to change classes please let us know as soon as possible at customerservice@fatquarterly.com. We will do our best to accomodate your wishes but please keep in mind that we have limited space in each class and timetabling may make it impossible for us to change classes for you.

There can be NO class changes after 1 July 2014.
