Thanks to generous funding from Arts Council England, we are able to offer this event as Pay What You Decide, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have experienced the workshop

Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a workshop in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy the experience or not.

Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have attended. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience and enjoyment, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything –  please book via the eventbrite link!
