Checking availability and paying
For scheduled ie public events please:
1. For Open Tours
a) Contact Kate at Culture Connect to see if there is space and she will give you her bank details for you to EFT (or you pay by cash by coming to her base in Rosebank)
b) COMING SOON on-line with Quicket which takes credit and debit cards, or EFT – electronic funds transfer; please add R10 to the Culture Connect event price
Pre-payment is essential.
Once payment has been made your place will be confirmed electronically – you don’t have to print the ticket(s) from Quicket or the email from Culture Connect.
Invoices and receipts are issued on request. Like buying a theatre ticket, Culture Connect doesn’t refund, except if the event is cancelled or moved to another day.
2. For Customised Tours
For customised ie personal tours organised over the phone, email, Skype or pre-meeting, 50% of the fee is payable on commission. Culture Connect will issue an invoice and letter of the agreement including cancellation details.
3. Info from you and Culture Connect SA before the event
Please let Culture Connect know about any dietary or medical conditions. We also like to have a bit of background on you, such as if you are retired or a student, your line of work and where you live. This is used for the briefing and the seating plan.
Culture Connect emails a detailed info pack in advance with directions and a map on where we are meeting, timetable, background information on what we are seeing, what to bring/wear and the participants’ list.
During the event, Culture Connect often takes photographs as a record and to use in publicity. On social media, we don’t name guests or tag. But please let Kate know in if you don’t want you or your children to be in images.
