THE SHOWREEL

Training & Demos Terms & Conditions

The following terms and conditions apply to all Workshop, Demo and 121 bookings with The Showreel Ltd.

Terms & Conditions that apply to all Recording Studio Bookings can be found here.

Fundamentals For Our Training & Workshops

  • You must be able to read written English.
  • You must be able to take direction.
  • You must be over the age of 16 years unless by prior agreement with The Showreel Ltd

Cancellation, Rescheduling & Refunds

  • Cancellations
    • A minimum of 7 days (168 hours) notice must be given to cancel your booking or you will lose your session payment.
    • Your obligation is the full session value. In the circumstance that you cancel a demo, you might have paid the deposit but you leave us with a day’s empty studio time that your full fee would have covered. Therefore, should you cancel, your obligation is for the full session fee and you agree to cover this cost. We will take this payment from the card you made your deposit from.
    • Cancellations due to adverse weather conditions will result in a £50 admin fee for Demos and Workshops or £25 for 121 sessions, but the balance of your session value will be used for the next available session slot.
  • Rescheduling
    • You may reschedule your appointment at any time up to 7 days (168 hours) prior, but not less than 48 business hours, to your booking.
    • For less than 7 days, there is an admin re-booking fee of £50 for Workshops or £25 for 1-2-1 Sessions.
    • Demo Packs cannot be rescheduled if you are less than 7 days from the booked date.
    • However, any rescheduling request within 48 business hours (Mon-Fri) of your booking will, unfortunately, result in any payments made being forfeit as we won’t be able to fill your previous booking.
    • Rescheduling fees must be paid within one week.
    • If no rescheduling payment is made, you will forfeit any payments made and your session will be cancelled.
    • A Rescheduling request cannot be open ended – a new date must be provided within 3 days of the initial request otherwise it will be deemed as a Cancelation.
    • Only one reschedule per booking. More than one Reschedule will result in your booking being cancelled until a Rescheduling fee for 25% of your full/undiscounted session value is paid.
    • If a pack of 121s is bought and only part used there will be no refund available for the remaining sessions.
  • Refunds
    • You may request a full refund within 14 days of making your initial purchase.
    • Any refunds given will be net of any transaction fees we have incurred.
    • Any refund requests after this period will incur an admin charge of 20% of your full session value which will be deducted from the refund made. You will be refunded 80% of your session value as a credit note for any future Showreel booking. This credit will be valid for 6 months.
    • If you ask for a refund with the Voice Over Journey package, no admin charge will apply if you do this within one week of your Intro Workshop and you will receive a cash refund. Thereafter, the 20% admin charge will apply and you will get an 80% credit note valid for 6 months for future Showreel bookings.
    • No refunds will be given 7 days or less to your booking.
    • No refund will be given after your first appointment reschedule.
    • No refunds will be given on expired codes.
    • No refunds will be given on partly used packs of 121s or partly used Voice Over Journeys. A partly used Voice Over Journey is defined as having used some but not all of the 121s or demo included in your package.
    • In some circumstances, we may give you a credit Session Code to use towards a future demo booking by deducting the full value of each 121 session you have used from the purchase price of the pack.

Colds & Sniffles!

  • We know that colds happen so, if you’re within the seven day notice period, please call us as soon as possible (ideally more than 48 hours) from your session, and we’ll try find someone to take your booking. If we are successful at finding someone then no rescheduling fee will need to be paid.
  • In the eventuality that you arrive full of a cold, we also reserve the right not to hold the session. Clearly, if we catch your cold it has a significant impact on our business and, as per the previous point, we are reasonable in trying to rearrange for another day even if you are within the notice period.
