Yes, we can issue refunds for groups of 4 or less, however, this must be done with at least a week's notice. For larger groups, we can arrange for your tickets to be transferred - so please let us know an alternative date and we will try to accommodate your request as best we can.
Sorry, as a general rule we don't yet privately hire our facilities. However, please drop us a line and we can make a judgement call based on availability and other factors. Maximum group number remains 12 people.
