Workshop providers are entitled to the following discounted tickets providing they offer a minimum of six hours of workshop activity:

  • 1x ticket for the leader
  • 1x ticket for their assistant
  • 3x tickets for their family members (1x adult and 2x children or 3x children)

These people must be either a partner, parent, guardian or dependent child. Please note that we are unable to provide discounted tickets for the Workshop Assistant’s family members, if the full allocation is used by the leader.

You must ensure that at least two adults are present at your workshops at any given time. This can include parents of children attending the workshop.

When you apply you will receive an email to let you know we received your application. The approval process is done manually, so you won’t receive an answer straight away. Please give it up to a week before contacting us about this as the people working through the applications do so in their own time and are volunteers just like you.

Once your application has been accepted, you will receive another email with a booking link. Your workshop is not confirmed until you have booked your tickets. Click the link and scroll down to the bottom of the list of tickets and you’ll find the workshop and workshop family member tickets. 

The email also contains a volunteer reference that you need to enter on the next page after choosing your ticket types. This is so we can match up your application with your tickets. If you have already booked your tickets and included your booking reference when you applied, your refund will be processed shortly.

The workshop assistant can use the same link to book their ticket, but please make sure you give them your volunteer reference number.

REMEMBER: Your workshop is not guaranteed until you have booked your tickets and received the email saying your workshop has been confirmed. 

We cannot send the email if you haven’t booked your tickets. It is your responsibility to book your tickets. Tickets have sold out in the past and we cannot keep your workshop spot open if you fail to book your tickets in time.
