A hard copy of our programme of forthcoming events is on its way to members of Art Friends Cambridgeshire, and further information may be made available by email.  The programme will include an Allocation Date for the events listed (or Closing Date for applications for an event advertised by email). Please be aware that it is at the Allocation Date/Closing Date that we must decide whether or not the event is viable, and note that an application for a ticket (unless withdrawn before the allocation or closing date) is a commitment to buy one when it is offered to you. If you miss the Allocation Date, do please still apply by using the links on this page.  We may not be fully booked or, if we are, you may like to go on a waiting list.

We do not give refunds if you are unable to use your ticket. However it is worth contacting the Ticket Organiser as there may be a waiting list and we might find someone to take your ticket.  If so, we would put you in touch with each other (with your permission) so you could arrange payment between you.

We welcome non-members to our events, although priority will go to members if overbooked. Non-members will pay an administrative supplement. The supplement is not refundable if the non-member finds they are unable to attend the event and the ticket is subsequently taken by a member. Non-members interested in attending an event are welcome to contact the Event Organiser by using the form linked to the relevant event page.

Please bear in mind that arrangements may need to be adjusted, postponed or cancelled to conform to organisational changes or any government health requirements in place at the time.
