Cancellation Policy

No refunds are offered but we know that life happens and we are here to help you.

Public Registration Events:

We have a firm 72-hour cancellation policy. If you let us know ahead of this window, we’d be happy to move you to another event for a $5 admin fee per registration to ensure that we have enough time to re-fill your seat with another student. While it is not in our nature to say no, we are simply not able to offer credit for last-minute illnesses or scheduling conflicts. You are however, always welcome to send someone in your place (and we hope that you do). Reschedule credits expire 6 months from the original date of purchase. 

Privately Booked Events:

Your deposit reserves our Kitchen on the date and time selected at booking. If you’d like to reschedule your event, a new deposit is always needed. If you’d like to cancel your event (and we really hope that you don’t), you may do so at anytime but please keep in mind that your deposit is non-refundable and cancellations made within 7 days of your event will be charged in full.

On rare occasions TBK will have to reschedule or cancel an event. In these situations, you will be contacted at the contact information provided along with a credit towards a future event or a refund. 

Photography & Multi-Media Policy

I agree that photographs and videos taken by TBK agents during events are the property and exclusive copyright of TBK and can be used for publicity purposes. I agree and that no compensation will be given for the use of this media. If I do not wish photographs or videos of my child to be taken, I will notify the office in writing prior to the event.
