Data collection

We always have a valid reason or explanation to collect data and the personal data will not be used for any further purpose without additional consent being obtained. See our privacy policy.

Data protection

We are committed to ensuring that your personal information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access, disclosure or loss of your personal information, we have put in place the appropriate organisational and technical safeguards to ensure the security of the personal information we collect.

Friends event attendance

By booking a place at an event, you agree to follow any reasonable instructions we may give when you attend the event. We may refuse to allow you to join an event, or may remove you from an event if we reasonably believe your behaviour is an impediment to the smooth running of the event.

We don’t allow anyone under 18 to join our events. We may ask to see proof of age and can refuse to let you join an event if you can’t provide this.

If you want to cancel your place at an event please let us know by emailing [email protected] at least 48 hours before the event.

Changes to an event

We may at our discretion change the format, speakers, participants, content, location, programme or any other aspect of an event at any time and for any reason.

We may also change the date of an event or cancel an event for any reason. If this happens, we’ll aim to notify you at least 24 hours before the event (except where not reasonably practicable to do so) and offer you the option of attending another event instead. If you don’t want to attend the other event, please contact us at [email protected] to let us know.

If you’ve already bought ingredients and you can’t use them for the event because of a change, we would expect that you can still use those ingredients without attending the event.

We won’t have any liability to you or anyone else if an event is cancelled or postponed.

Photographs at events

We may arrange for group photographs and/or video footage to be taken at events and used for promotional purposes. This may include printed documents or media, editorial coverage, advertising press, and use on the internet. By booking a place on an event you agree that your image may be used in this manner. We’ll make a reasonable effort to get specific consent from you if you are the main subject of an image or video footage. If you don’t want to be included in photographs or video footage, please speak to a member of our team when you arrive at the event or contact us in advance at [email protected].
