1.2 Refund Policy:

Patrick Holford Events including Workshops and Retreats (including the Total Health Transformation Retreat and Hybrid Fast Detox Retreat)

Patrick Holford Retreats (residential events of 2 or more days)
• For some retreats, including the Hybrid retreat your suitability, and thus acceptance for the event is not confirmed until we have received your health assessment form and confirm suitability. In the event your suitability is not confirmed your deposit will be refunded in full.
• Your place is not confirmed until both your deposit (if applicable) or the full fee is paid.
• Up to 60 days before the retreat a full refund, less a £50 administration charge, is given upon receipt of an email to events@patrickholford.com confirming your request to cancel. This charge covers our cost of assessing your suitability and finance charges. This also applies if we have to cancel for reasons beyond our control and have offered other dates.
• Less than 60 days before the event but more than 7 days before, in the event you need to cancel, you can choose to transfer your place to the next available retreat at no cost provided we can fill your place or, if we cannot, you will receive a refund of your fees, less the deposit, which is non-refundable. If fees have increased for the next available retreat the difference will be charged. However, if we are able to fill your place(s), and you wish a refund, we will also refund your deposit, less a £50 administration charge. We will notify you of this within a week of the end of the retreat.

• Less than 14 days before the retreat no fees will be refunded for cancellations as we will have incurred all costs.

Third Party Retreat Bookings

Payment:• A deposit of 25% of the total cost is required to secure your Retreat booking.

• The balance is payable on or before one month of the event start date. The deposit will be repaid for cancellations made 8 weeks before the event start date. Thereafter, your deposit is non-refundable, unless we are able to sell the date on to another facilitator. If so your deposit will be returned, less an admin fee of £100 + VAT

Cancellations made less than 14 days from the event start date will incur the full cost.


We are offering transfers where possible or a refund if you need to cancel due to government lockdown or local restrictions being put in place. Any cancellations falling outside of lockdown will be subject to our usual terms and conditions.

All events are health education events only and do not aim to treat, prevent or cure any conditions, nor provide medical treatment or advice. We are not a medical organisation and the information and reports generated by us should not be interpreted as a substitute for a medical consultation. Nothing contained in the event should be construed as medical advice or diagnosis. It is your responsibility to determine, through obtaining appropriate medical advice, that you are fit and well and that such contents and services are suitable for you. It is not our responsibility to do so. Please seek advice from your doctor if you’re in any way concerned about your health, you are very overweight, before commencing any exercise regime, if you have an existing medical condition that could be affected by dieting, if you believe you have an eating disorder, or if you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy. The events are not intended for those under the age of 18 or over 70 without consent from a parent, doctor or guardian.

Please note: we have to commit to venues, catering and material costs several weeks before events and the administration charge covers these commitments and the process of refunding. Refunds are made via credit card, cheque refunds can only be made, on request, in the UK.
