I am not sure whose fault it was but the booking of a course here was a disaster. I bought a voucher for my daughter in law. She booked the date for last weekend and duly made the journey to Morpeth (she lives in Newcastle ). On arriving she was told there was no course that day (despite having confirmation in writing). Clearly a mistake between Groupon and FGT. She was offered two alternative dates but had to decline as she is abroad for 5 months from next week. Eventually she was given a voucher for the autumn to do the course then. She is young and accepting, but as the purchaser I feel slightly responsible and think it is a very poor situation. (she of course did not get a refund on her travel costs ). Please sort it out between you Groupon and FGT!

Bought a 2x 2 1/2 hour workshop for myself and daughter. The workshop was over and finished in 1 hour 10 mins. 1 voucher could of cover both of our visit. 1.10 mins was no where near start I expected. Was a very expensive time. Would not recommend
