If a member does not take up a place or complete a term for any reason (other than the above) there is no entitlement to a refund. You can however opt to transfer your fee to the following term. If you wish to transfer to another choir or class you need to consult our Membership Coordinator and any difference in the fee or subscription must be paid or be refunded. If you require a receipt for your postal enrolment, you will need to enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope.

Gift Aid
If you are a taxpayer, current legislation allows us to reclaim basic rate income tax on your membership subscriptions (however not on CDs, class fees or tuition elements). When enrolling please read the Gift Aid declaration and tick the box if you are happy for us to do this.
