Running specialist small group retreats relies on a minimum amount of participants - as much for your experience as for ours. In the unlikely event that we need to cancel, you will be given a full refund PLUS a 20% discount on the next available course.
We aim for about 10 participants although this is a bit dependant on each course. Sometimes we may reduce or increase numbers to get the best group dynamic and combination of players / singers.
