  • COST: The actual cost of these workshops is in excess of £10,000. Ealing Music Service however are offering this fantastic opportunity to schools for only £50 per workshop.
    CANCELLATION FEE: If after booking your workshop you choose to cancel, you must do so by Friday 12th February 2016. Cancelling any later than this will result in a cancellation fee of £250.
    EVALUATION: Feedback is crucial to help us assess the usefulness of these workshops, so you will be required to fill in a short evaluation form after receiving the workshop.
    SELECTION CRITERIA: Workshops are allocated on a 1st come 1st served basis, ensuring that each school gets at least 1 workshop. Suggested times for the workshops are approximate. Slight adjustments can be made to suit your school. Practitioners will not necessarily have been DBS checked and we therefore advise you take this into account. A suitable place to carry out the workshop will need to be provided-the school & act will need to liaise prior to the event to arrange this.
