Bookings and Travel


Important things to know

To book, please email Susanne Wakefield.

For Dark Angels Residential Courses a non-refundable deposit of 50% of the course fee is required to secure your place. For Starter Days the full amount is required and is non-refundable. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. We expect all places to be filled, so early booking is advised.

You will be sent an invoice as soon as you book. Your balance (+ single room supplement if allocated) is due not later than 30 days before the start date of the course. This should be sent without waiting for a reminder from us. If we do not receive it when due, we reserve the right to offer the place to someone else.


In the case of Residential Courses we will accept cancellations up to 30 days before the start of any course, but the 50% deposit is non-refundable. If you cancel after this time, the full course fee is due. Bookings are not transferable between courses. We do not provide cancellation insurance, but advise you to take out your own insurance.


In some of our venues there are a mixture of twin and single bedrooms. This means that sometimes one or two pairs of students will have to share. Please let us know when you book if you are or are not willing to share.

Food and Drink

The course prices are inclusive of all food and drink except for wine and beer. Breakfast and lunch are help-yourself meals. In some venues everyone is asked to help with some of the preparation for the evening meal, and the clearing up afterwards – this adds to the house-party feel of the course.


By attending the course you agree that any original writing you produce on the course may be placed on a web page of writing from that course.


Neither we, the organisers, nor the owners of any venues can accept responsibility for any loss, damage or expense sustained by students as a result of any event or circumstance whether arising from natural cause, human agency, or otherwise beyond our control. The organisers and venue owners reserve the right to refuse a place and to exclude from a course any student who, in their opinion, behaves in an abusive or disruptive manner. No refund will be given if an exclusion is made for this reason.


We will advise you of the travel options to the location where your course is being held at the time you book, and subsequently by email. Please note that the costs of travel to Dark Angels courses are not included in the course fees.
