Members who have booked and paid for events which have been postponed (because of Covid) will be contacted by the organiser as soon as a new date is confirmed and given first refusal for a new booking.   Those members who are unable to attend on the new date will be given a credit redeemable indefinitely as payment for any future TVN event(s).  We trust that members will understand that issuing refunds is very complicated, time consuming and  requires postal addresses and stamps.

If you would like to receive information directly from TVN with details of Study Days and Workshops, please email  events_info@u3atvn with your request to be put on the list.  You can, of course, use the same address to ‘unsubscribe’ at any time.
