How our booking deposit works
We want as many children to enjoy Wildlife Watch events as possible, but have limited places for each event. For this reason we now have a deposit scheme where you pay £5 per child when you book, which is refunded to you within 5 days of attending the event.
If you have booked and want to cancel, you can cancel your booking at least 24 hours beforehand by clicking ‘view and manage order’ on the confirmation email or contacting us by phone and your deposit will be refunded. Anyone booked on an event and is a no-show on the day of the event (or cancels less than 24 hours before the event) will forfeit their deposit.
A booking deposit helps more children enjoy our Wildlife Watch events, particularly for events which are popular and a space cancelled more than 24 hours in advance can be filled by another child on the waiting list.
