No. Alan plans two routes per workshop. One predominantly outdoors for good weather, another mainly indoors in the event of rain.

I am under 18 years old. Can I book a place on a 1 to 1 workshop? 

You may, but need to be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the day. If that adult wishes to take part in the workshop, they will need to purchase a place also. 

Can I bring a friend along?

Only paying participants are allowed to attend (unless under the age of 18 with an accompanying adult)

How physically demanding is a workshop?

We tend to walk around 5-7 miles over the course of the day. As the workshops are based in cities this isn't overly taxing.

Are lunches included?

Refreshments are provided at the beginning of the day, but participants are asked to bring their own lunch with them or to purchase it during the designated lunch break. Alan will no doubt have a beer or glass of wine with you at some point also if you so wish.
