Quick link to our Cookie Declaration listing all the cookies we use.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of information, normally consisting of just letters and numbers, which websites create when you visit them. Your web browser can store these cookies and send them back to our website or other websites you visit.
How are cookies used?
Cookies are a specific technology that store information between website visits. They are used in numerous ways, such as helping us analysing the traffic to our website, or tracking your browsing behaviour to help us improve our site.
Cookies can be useful because they allow us to recognise your device. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. Without cookies, or some other similar method, websites would have no way to ‘remember’ anything about visitors, such as how many items are in a shopping basket or whether they are logged in.
What are ‘session’ and ‘persistent’ cookies?
Cookies that expire at the end of a browser session (normally when a user exits their browser) are called ‘session cookies’. They allow us to recognise and link your actions during a browsing session as well as help us with our security.
Cookies that can be stored for longer are called ‘persistent cookies’. These are stored on your device in-between sessions. They can allow the preferences or actions of the user across a site (or across different websites) to be remembered as well as to display adverts to you as you when you visit other sites (we do not use this type of tracking on our site). The length of time between a cookie being set and expiry can be set is by the website operator for First Party Cookies (i.e. us), or by the owner of the cookie (Third Party Cookies, e.g. Eventbrite).
How can I delete my cookies?
Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies and to delete cookies. However, if you refuse all cookies, some functions of our website (and others) may not work correctly. A better solution is to use our opt-in / opt-out banner which is displayed to you when you first visit our site, or by clicking this link:
Alternatively you can configure your browser to delete cookies. The methods for doing so vary from browser to browser, and from version to version. You can however obtain up-to-date information about blocking and deleting cookies via these links:
We use a third-party company (Cookiebot) to help us manage our cookies. When you first visit our site, a cookie banner is displayed giving you the option to opt-in and out of the various cookies we use. All the non-essential cookies have been turned off by default, but if you find something doesn't work on our site (e.g. a booking or sign up form), it may be necessary to enable those cookies. This preference is saved in a (necessary) cookie called 'CookieConsent'. Cookiebot runs a regular scan of our site and provide us with a report that lists all the cookies in use on our website, grouped as follows:
Help make our website usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies. Becuase they are necessary, their use is covered by our Legitimate Interest - if you want to use our site, then these cookies need to be used.
Help us and our partners (e.g. Eventbrite) understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information, usually based on a unique user ID.
Used to track visitors across websites. The intention is to display ads that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for publishers and third party advertisers. Although our site has some marketing cookies, they are turned off by default and are provided by our third parties (e.g. Eventbrite) and not actively used by us.
Cookies that we are in the process of classifying, together with the providers of the individual cookies.
