Welcome to the

Jewel of Yorkshire Website

News at 21st September 2018...

Our next JoY will be on the 5th, 6th, and 7th of October 2018.

Just two weeks to go now! We will continue to sell tickets for 8 more days, but we do have a deadline. We will take postal, email and online bookings right up to 29th September 2018 – after which the Box Office will close while we do print-runs and organise things for the weekend. Tickets for any spare workshop places will be available to purchase at the venue; we have a board on display from Friday evening onwards.

Some people have noted that, on the website, a workshop can show a small percentage of places available; but when you try to book it the online system will not let you. This is because we have set up the system with a buffer of one or two places so that in the event that we get postal bookings, email bookings and online bookings for a workshop all at the same time we do not end up with an oversubscribed workshop. If the online booking system is showing a low percentage, and won’t let you have a place, then email us. It could be that a place is still available. If the workshop is showing 0% then sorry, but it really is sold out. But see the paragraph below about going on the Reserve List for a workshop.

Our principal teacher, Sahar Samara, has sold so well that ALL her workshops have now SOLD OUT! We also have a number of workshops by other teachers that have been very popular with people and have sold out too; the latest being “Jamila Salimpour Format” by Anne Kemper. But, if you would like the possibility of a place on one of these workshops all is not lost. Please email us at admin@jewelofyorkshire.co.uk. We never overbook our workshops, or try to cram more and more people into a room, but there is always the possibility that someone will cancel their booking. This is often at the last minute because they are unfit, or unable to travel, have a family crisis or some other reason. If you look at our bookings policy you will see that we offer to try to resell the unfortunate person’s workshops – so we can give them a refund. So, we hold a reserve list for each full workshop. Be assured that if a place becomes available we will go to the reserve list to refill it.

Most of you should now be familiar with our new-look website. We had to change things due to changes in some of the software that was part of our old-style site. We hope this new format will be more up-to-date and friendly to more devices. We try to keep everything running correctly, but mistakes do happen. If you find something please email admin@jewelofyorkshire.co.uk and we will look into it.

We have had to change some aspects of the online booking system. Most importantly you can only make a booking for one person at a time, you cannot put multiples of workshops or shows on the same booking. If you want to book sessions for more than one person you must finish the first booking and pay, then you can start again for someone else. Please remember to put the full name of the person you are booking for in the information section on the checkout page and their email if you want confirmation to go to them (we normally send the confirmation to the person who paid). If in doubt email admin@jewelofyorkshire.co.uk and let us know what you are wanting to do.

We use a database to hold your information. The data held is NEVER shared with, or sold to, anyone else and we will only contact you about your booking.

Looking forward to seeing you in October.
