Terms & Conditions

Refunds & Cancellations:

Changed your mind? There is a 72-hour “cooling off” period from the point of booking (and payment) when you may request a full refund for a course/workshop which has not yet started or is not due to start during that 72-hour period.

72 hours after payment and booking, and at least 10 days before the start of a course/workshop, students may request a partial refund (a £10 admin charge will be retained for each cancelled course/workshop).  Also within this time period, students may transfer the course fee to pay for another course offered by Evolution.  If the course fee for the new course is a lesser cost, the remainder can be refunded (subject to a £10 administration fee) or be used as a credit to a further course or workshop.

Cancellations less than 10 days before the start of a course/workshop (or after the course has started) will not be eligible for a refund or transferal to another course. However, if there are exceptional circumstances such as a serious medical condition, requests may be made in writing for a full or partial credit (emails to This credit can be used as part payment for any course or workshop within 12 months. A medical certificate or letter from a medical professional will be required.

Please bear in mind that Evolution Arts is a registered charity (No.1133828) and to operate successfully it’s important that we adhere to this policy.

Cancellation of courses:

On rare occasions we may cancel under-subscribed courses/workshops. As late bookings can be frequent any such decision is made as late as possible. If a cancellation is necessary, we will give those booked two days notice by phone and a full refund. You may wish to check your course is going ahead before buying art materials, etc. 


You can book over the phone using your debit or credit card (credit cards incur a £1 fee per booking). Our phone number is 01273 204204 and the office is open Monday to Friday 10am - 4pm.  


Evolution Arts tries to keep its prices as affordable as possible. Concessions on course fees are available to:

  1. Under-25s

  2. Full-time unemployed (JSA, DLA, ESA)

  3. Over-65s

Due to the current financial climate and difficulties faced by many people we are applying our concessions policy lightly.  If your circumstances make a course unaffordable at the full price, please feel free to email the office and we will consider your position and may well offer you a concessionary rate.

Concessions are not available on evening courses where there is a daytime equivalent.

Bookings for Young People

We are an adult education centre - unfortunately we are not able to accept bookings for Under-18s on our courses and workshops.

Contact details

Please note - we may share your contact details with the course tutor.  If you’d rather we didn’t do this then please let us know by email.
