Apologies we have had to pause offering a concession rate for our paying in-person cookery classes. Due to the pandemic we cannot fit as many people in the kitchen which means classes generate less vital revenue needed to keep the charity going. 

We are still offering tiered ticket prices for our brilliant online live cookery classes (£5-£30), recordings of live classes (£3-£20) and everyone is welcome to sign up to our FREE to attend in-person and online community class newsletter list by emailing Thank you for your understanding. 

You will need to bring a glass Kilner style clip top jar approx 350ml  

Refunds/transfers: we require a minimum of 7 days' notice for any cancellations or transfers once you have booked onto a class to enable us to try to resell your ticket. 

Please understand our charity needs time to enable us to try to resell your tickets as we rely heavily on the income generated. You are also welcome to give your ticket to a friend or family member in case of last minute illness (just email to let us know).
