Apart from assistance dogs we don’t allow animals into the Buddhist Centre.
Booking, Paying and Concessions Explained
Full payment must be made at time of booking to secure a place on a course.
Bookings can be made online, over the phone, by post or in person at the Brighton Buddhist Centre
Online payments can be made through ‘PayPal’ (You do not have to register for an account). Click on the ‘Pay Now’ button against the course you wish to book. You will be directed to the PayPal site where you can pay with your credit or debit card or directly through PayPal if you have an account.
If the course is full you may wish to contact us as there may be cancellations available.
Credit or Debit Card Payments
We accept card payments at the Centre or over the phone. The telephone is always answered during our reception times, Monday to Friday 12.30 to 2.30pm. Outside these time we try to answer the phone between 9.30am and 3.30pm Monday to Friday but cannot always do so due to other commitments. If you leave a message we will return your call as soon as we can.
Cheques should be made out to “Brighton Buddhist Centre”. If sending a cheque through the post as payment please include a note stating what course/event you are paying for, your name, address, telephone number and email address in case we need to contact you.
The concessionary rate applies to: students in full time education, people receiving state pension, anyone unemployed claiming state benefits, and people working for Triratna in TBRLs.
Our Meditation and Buddhism courses also offer a mid-rate concession to people on low incomes. By low income we mean those who would otherwise be unable to pay the full rate but do not qualify for the low rate. We are willing for you to make that decision for yourself but ask you to recognise that we are a small charity and depend on income from these courses to continue our work. However, it is our wish that no-one should be excluded from our courses for financial reasons.
- Refunds are not given as a matter of course.
- However, if cancellation occurs 14 days prior to an event/course starting, a full refund minus an admin fee will be offered.
- In extenuating circumstances, we will consider refunding payments at our discretion, if a request is received in writing to the Centre manager explaining the circumstances. In all cases, we will retain an admin fee.
- Transfers are only possible before a course has started, with at least 7 days’ notice, and only if there is an equivalent course to transfer.
