Courses Terms and Conditions for Totally Wild Food LTD

Please read these terms & conditions carefully before purchasing a place or buying a voucher to one of our courses. Once a completed booking has been accepted all the persons named on the booking form (“the client(s)”) will have entered a binding contract on the basis of these terms & conditions. If you have any questions about them please do not hesitate to contact us at

Agreement on the basis these terms & conditions arise upon the fulfilment of all of a booking being made.

Totally Wild Food LTD reserves the right, in its absolute discretion and without the need to give reasons, to refuse to accept a booking. In such circumstances, no agreement arises and Totally Wild Food LTD will return any payment accompanying the booking.

The agreement is between Totally Wild Food LTD and the client(s) and is the sole agreement between those parties.

No variation of these terms & conditions shall be applicable unless agreed in writing by Totally Wild Food LTD before the relevant course. The person booking shall be deemed to sign that form for his / herself and as agent for all other persons listed on that form and warrants that he/she is appointed agent for that purpose.

The agreement is governed by English law.


The balance of the fee as specified on the booking must be paid in full by the date specified on the booking, If not so paid, Totally Wild Food LTD reserves the right to treat the agreement as cancelled by the client(s) pursuant to clause 4, below.

If the payment of an invoiced course becomes overdue from the agreed payment terms Totally Wild Food LTD will charge the client £25 each and every week that the payment is overdue. This is to cover the admin costs that arise to chase this payment.


Whilst every effort is made to limit prices to those given in the booking, Totally Wild Food LTD reserves the right to alter prices should its costs in hosting a course increase for reasons beyond its reasonable control (including, without limitation, the cost of labour, transport and materials). In the event that a price is altered the client(s) will be notified as soon as reasonably possible and the balance of the altered price will be payable on the same terms as was the original price. In the event of the price being thus increased by 10% or more the client may opt to cancel the booking and will then be entitled to a refund of all monies paid.


4.1 Place or places on a course will be secured when full payment has been received. Once a course is booked and paid for, any cancellation will result in a complete loss of all deposits and payment. Due to our courses requiring catering and being held on specific dates they do not fall under the 14-day consumer cancellation policy and we are not required to refund you. If you are unable to attend please see point 5 regarding rescheduling.

4.2 In the circumstance where a client is provided with credit for events (when a payment isn’t taken upfront) if clients cancel within 4 months of the course taking place they will be charged 100% of the original FULL course costs. This specifically relates to private events where deposits might be taken in advance and days of work being ringfenced specifically for the private event. For details with why this is the case please get in touch and we can outline this for you.

4.3 If Totally Wild Food LTD cancels a course, you’ll get a full refund for direct payments, but not for vouchers. Totally Wild Food LTD cannot refund if the cancellation is due to factors beyond our control, like extreme weather.

4.4 And the client acknowledges that it is reasonable for such penalties to arise, given the need for Totally Wild Food LTD to make preparations for a course substantially in advance of the course.


5.1 Totally Wild Food LTD understands that events arise that may be out of the control of the client, therefore, if the client wishes to change the date of the event they are currently booked on to, this can be done up to 30 days before the original course date. Totally Wild Food LTD will charge the client £10 to do this which must be paid in full before the date change can be fully processed. This payment helps cover the extra administration efforts required to make the changes and resell the original spaces where possible.

5.2 This cannot be done within 30 days of the event date.

14. Sale of Age restricted items

As part of the transactional process, we will attempt to verify the age of the person purchasing any bladed product. We will seek to verify the customer’s details in order to clarify the customer’s age.

There are three possible outcomes when we perform our checks.

1. The customer’s age is verified, and they are believed as over the age of 18. In this case, the order will progress through our systems and be delivered as normal

2. The customer’s age cannot be verified and it is not possible to confirm whether they are over the age of 18 or not. In this case, DPD may require Photo ID on delivery

3. Unfortunately as the age verification was not successful the customer will be contacted by our Customer Services Team

“Please note under the Criminal Justice Act 1988 (as amended) we are only allowed to sell knives to persons aged 18 and over. Details of our age verification process can be found within our Sale of Age Restricted Goods Policy”.


Pets and animals are welcomed at most of our events, however we ask that owners understand that they attend at their own risk and at the owners liability. We cannot be held liable for any damage or injury caused by their pet or animal.

Owners must also ensure their pet or animal is kept under control and does not cause a nuisance to other attendees or damage to any property. We reserve the right to ask for a pet or animal be removed at any time during an event if it is deemed appropriate to do so.
