Vegan Patisserie Course Agreement

Dear Guests, Jen and Nick Thompson welcome you to the Premises of La Cour de Husson and to the Vegan Patisserie Course. This document contains the underlying Terms and Conditions for participation in the course. They may look intimidating, but they are an important way of communicating the precise nature of the agreement between each individual Guest and the Proprietors. We hope that they will forestall any future potential issues. The Principal Guest is responsible for ensuring that all Guests are made aware of these Terms and Conditions to the extent that they are relevant to their stay. The Principal Guest is identified by name in the booking communications, which may take one of several different forms, depending on the source of the Booking.
