General information for those attendingorkshops/creative courses at The Barn:-

What is the full venue address?

The Barn, Pye Rd, Heswall, CH60 0DB

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the venue?

On street parking is limited to the front of the shop with a disability badge or after 6pm. However, the rear car park is often available evenings after  6pm for use by workshop attendees. It cannot however be used during daytime hours. Otherwise May Road car park is accessible within a short walk (1-2 minutes!) of The Barn. This is a meter operated system.

Public transport links are nearby with the main bus depot being another very short 1-2 minute walk to The Barn. The venue is easily accessible on foot from Heswall Centre and is located on the same street as The Johnny Pye pub and around the corner from the main PO/Sass hairdressers/Iceland.

How accessible is the venue?

The workshop space is located on the upper floor and accessed via approximately 10 wooden steps. Access can be gained via the front or rear. There are toilet provisions on the ground floor. We would advise wheelchair users or those with limited mobility to contact The Barn to ensure a car park space is reserved at the rear if possible although there are on street parking options for disabled Blue Badge users at the front of the building.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Feel free to get in touch via email to enquiries@thebarnwirral.co.uk or to the course tutor direct, if details have been provided.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

If you find that you cannot attend then you are welcome to pass your place on to a friend who may find it useful. Please let The Barn and /or the organiser know the name of the substitute if you need to do this.

Alternatively, tickets can be transferred to a future workshop, delivered by the same tutor, if an e-mail request is made to enquiries@thebarnwirral.co.uk & is sent with at least 14 clear days notice prior to the event itself. Unfortunately, with no prior written notice and within 14 days of the event, the ticket is not transferable but can still be passed to a friend to take the place.

Do I have to bring my e-mail confirmation to the event?

A register will be taken at the workshop so it isn’t necessary to print your ticket. In fact, we’d prefer you didn’t to save the environment!

What is the refund/cancellation policy?

Full refunds will be offered in the event of the class being cancelled by the tutor. In this scenario, we will give as much notice as possible and offer alternative dates if appropriate. All workshops do have a minimum requirement of ticket sales for it to proceed so there is a possibility of it being cancelled of these are not met. However, we will aim to contact you with at least 3-5 days notice if this is the case.

If for any reason you find you are unable to attend, then please get in touch and a refund (less any non refundable deposit) can be offered up to 30 days before the workshop. Outside of this 30 day period and/or if no deposit option is specified, we are unable to offer a refund.

What can or should I bring into the event?

It is recommended to wear comfortable clothing to most workshops. Light refreshments will be provided along with biscuits but you are welcome to bring your own snacks, particularly if your course runs over lunch or you have special dietary requirements.
