We have recently had
a number of cheques returned to us as the drawer is in the process of
switching banks. I don’t know what the new bank is telling you but
the result is that a cheque drawn on your old bank will be rejected and
represented by our bank to your new bank. On it’s own this would
not be a problem, however, each time this happens we are charged £4
by our own bank. I am therefore making you aware that you are fully responsible
for any charges we receive from this process.
All places are allocated on a ballot basis, from time to time we do a first come first served, but it will be clearly marked on the Booking form when this applies. Any tickets/places that are still available for Events can be found here:
