Terms and Conditions of London Barbecue School

Service

London Barbecue School provides barbecue tuition services, as per the descriptions on this website and any special arrangements made at the time of booking (as confirmed in writing). London Barbecue School provide the ingredients, the equipment, the venue and tuition.

"Group Classes" are defined as a single session of cooking tuition, open to the general public. Clients can book a single place or multiple places for the class.

"Private Classes" are specially arranged on an ad hoc basis, the format and content as agreed with the client and the participants selected by the organiser. Places on private classes are not open to the general public

Booking and booking contacts

Any booking is an arrangement to provide the product on a specific date and at a specific time. This arrangement is made between London Barbecue School and the client.

If a client books on behalf of other participants, the booking remains an arrangement between the named client and London Barbecue School. London Barbecue School will only make or alter arrangements for the class in cooperation with the named client who booked - unless they receive the client's written permission to deal with anyone else.

Group classes: payment, rearrangement and cancellation terms

Payment in full is required at the time of booking. Until payment has been received any classes or dates that have been previously discussed remain provisional and may become unavailable.

When payment has been received you will receive an email from London Barbecue School confirming your purchase.

When requested, and with adequate prior warning, London Barbecue School will endeavour to rearrange class bookings for different times/dates, subject to availability of alternative classes. Rearrangement requests at short notice will be charged as cancellations (see below), although this is subject to London Barbecue School's management's discretion.

Cancellations at the client's request (in writing) 14 whole days or more prior to the class date will be refunded in full. Cancellations made (in writing) less than 14 whole days but 48 hours or more prior to the booking date will receive a 50% refund. Classes cancelled less than 48 hours prior to the class are not refundable.

London Barbecue School Shop periodically offers price discounts to London Barbecue School class customers. If you book a class and make use of these discounts before cancelling your class booking the following additional condition applies: the value of the discount will be deducted from the refund of your class fee.

In the unlikely event that London Barbecue School ever needs to cancel a class participants booked for that class will be offered the choice of either an alternative appointment within a reasonable period or full refund of the cost of your class.

Private Classes: payment, cancellation and rearrangement terms

A "Class Outline" will always be agreed prior to acceptance of a Private Class booking. This details the service to be provided and the appointment time and place.

Payment of a deposit for 40% of the total fee is required in order to secure an appointment booking for a London Barbecue School private class; until this is paid any dates discussed remain provisional. This deposit is non-refundable if the client cancels the booking or fails to pay the balance (as described below).

With a minimum 30 days warning prior to the scheduled Private Class date and at the client's written request London Barbecue School will endeavour to alter the date and time of an event; any costs incurred by London Barbecue School in doing so will be chargeable.

The balance of the fee for the event is required a minimum of 30 days prior to the appointment date. Failure to pay this will forfeit the booking and the deposit. For private events cancelled (in writing) at least 7 whole days prior to the event 50% of the balance (30% of the total booking fee) is refundable. Cancellations less than 7 days prior to the event are non-refundable.

In the unlikely event that London Barbecue School ever needs to cancel your event you will be offered the choice of either an alternative within a reasonable period or full refund of the cost of your class.

Resale

London Barbecue School do not permit the commercial resale of their services, unless expressly agreed in writing.

Class, course and event content and ingredients

Very occasionally it is necessary for London Barbecue School to make alterations to the content of classes and events or to the ingredients that will be used. We reserve the right to make such alterations as necessary.

Where changes are made to the that are deemed significantly different to the advertised or agreed class material, London Barbecue School will notify clients in advance of the class. For minor alterations London Barbecue School will make a suitable substitution.

All classes and courses advertised on London Barbecue School's website are subject to alteration and discontinuation without notice. If a class or course is altered or discontinued after a booking has been received London Barbecue School will honour the original details advertised.

Safety and behaviour

The client who books the class is responsible for their own behaviour, and the behaviour of any other participants they bring to the class. Any client who behaves in an unsafe manner, is in an unfit state to participate in a class or whose behaviour affects other participants' enjoyment of the class may be barred entry to a class or ejected from a class. If this occurs the fee paid for the class will be forfeited and no refund will be made.

Our online order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.

When you place your order online we will take payment as per clause. We will check Product availability and contact you by email to confirm that your order has been accepted. This email is our acceptance of your order and will specify delivery details and confirm the price of the Products purchased.

If the Product is not available we will decline your order and send to you an email explaining this and any payment made for the Products will be refunded in full.

Price

The price for each Product is shown on the website and includes any relevant sales taxes (such as VAT) at the current rate.

We always try to make sure that the prices on the website are accurate but errors may occur.
