In the event that you have to cancel or stop attending your course or workshop:
We are committed to keeping our course prices low. We do offer concession rates for anyone over 65, Student, NHS or claiming the benefits listed below. As we are a self-funded organisation, we receive no financial support in order to offer these rates.
Over 65, Student and NHS
Proof of these will be required when you attend your first class. If you can not provide evidence you will be asked to pay the full fee.
For those whose sole source of income is from a state benefit. We accept Universal Credit, Income Support, Job Seeker’s Allowance and Employment and Support Allowance. Please show a recent letter or statement stating your benefit when enrolling. We will need to see this proof of benefit each time you enrol. If you can afford to pay the full price, please do not ask for a concession as we are a charity and rely on student fees to keep us going.
If you need any additional support, please let us know in advance so we can make arrangements for you.
Carers are allowed to attend for free as long as they are not participating in the course or workshop. Please make sure this is stated when the student enrols. The career will be added to the register for fire safety reasons. Please make the office and tutor aware if the career attending will change throughout the course.
The Bristol Folk House currently has no level access.
We have been successful with a planning application to add lifts, ramps and accessible facilities to our building. Due to COVID19 this, unfortunately, has been delayed. We have started phase 1 of the project, but it will take several years to complete.
We have a video walkthrough of the current building layout available to view on youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVMlKkKcWGI
If you would like more information about accessing our building please contact email@example.com or call 0117 926 2987, we would be happy to help.
Currently, we do not have accessible toilets. These are part of Stage 1 of the development in 2022.
Guide Dogs and Hearing Dogs
They are more than welcome in the building. If you require any assistance please speak to a member of staff.
Deaf, hard of hearing
Currently, we do not have Induction Loops in our reception or classrooms. These are part of Stage 2 of the development in 2021.
Some classrooms have been fitted with red flashing light fire alarms.
We have no onsite car parking but there are many paid parking spots in the area. Please ask us for details on parking, bus and bike routes or visit our ‘Contact Us’ page for more details. Blue badge holders can park on Park Street. Please see the latest information on the Bristol Gov website. https://www.bristol.gov.uk/parking/where-you-can-park

If you booked someone on to a course or workshop and they are unable to make the dates, our general terms and conditions will apply.
The Bristol Folk House reserves the right to change tutors, courses and times after the publication of the programme. We are unable to grant a refund on the grounds of a change of tutor. The tutor may have different teaching styles; however, we guarantee consistency in the quality of the teaching. Make-up classes will be arranged if a tutor has to miss a class. If this make-up class cannot be arranged, you will be refunded for this class. We will contact you by phone and email to let you know a class has been cancelled. If on the rare occasion we have not been able to contact you, we will offer you a hot drinks voucher for the cafe.
