|Guest speakers and other staff (whether
or not advertised in our brochures) are usually booked many months
in advance of the holiday and sometimes they become unavailable, even
at very short notice. If this happens, we will always do our best
to make suitable alternative arrangements but any such change shall
not be regarded as a major change and we cannot be held liable or
responsible in these circumstances.
