Important Booking Information

Please secure your spots a few days earlier. We can’t guarantee same-day bookings as demand is always high.
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your booked time. This is a live event, so we must start on time. This time cannot be made up, so latecomers may not be admitted.
Our reception is wheelchair accessible. We have disabled facilities too.
One of our rooms is 90 percent disabled-friendly; they would need assistance from only 1 able-bodied person to do a couple of the puzzles.
