Arena Hire cancellation – if you are unable to attend your hire slot please contact us via email at least 24 hours before hire time. We are unable to refund but can move your hire slot to another date.


With a busy calendar our venue holds limited dates for events to be booked. For this reason, we request that you cancel at least one month before your scheduled clinic/ show/ event. This will allow us to offer your spot to another. You may email Georgia at admin@goldencrossec.com to cancel. If you cancel after one month before your scheduled clinic/ show or event you are required to pay 50% of the final total. (For clinics you will be required to pay for the hourly arena hire charge for the hours booked).


Please be aware that our photographer (PDG Event Photography) attends our events and the images taken at these events are uploaded to their website to view and purchase.

By entering or attending our events you are deemed to accept this, however if you wish not to have your photo taken please inform the organisers and the photographers on the day.
