Stop! Before Booking Any Asian Arts Workshops...
Let me ask you a simple question... with so much choice on the internet how do you know you are getting 100% Authentic Asian Arts Workshops at the best price, can all these companies claiming to be providers of workshops be relied on?
At Trap Media we kid you not when we say we can guarantee you that no one else in the UK can offer a wider range of professional workshops at an amazing price than us.
So before booking with someone else consider these questions below and you will realise Trap Media is the company of choice for any creative workshops nationwide. We just don't provide workshops we provide an experience you will never forget.
Do they have CRB Checks, Public Liability and a Child Protection Policy in place to safe guard vulnerable people?
Are the workshops authentic? Meaning is the workshop a traditional based multicultural experience?
Can they provide you with at least 5 testimonials from various organisations?
Can they provide you with workshops in Dance, Drama, Music, Visual, Asian and African Arts to your requirements?
Can they deliver nationwide? If so are you sure they will turn up or cancel on you at short notice?
Do they have any credibility or do you know how long they have been around for?
Do they have a dedicated support team to help you coordinate your event?
Well if they can't answer these questions above with full confidence we strongly recommend not using them quite frankly! We take pride and passion in every workshop we provide and you will not be disappointed.
You really don't want to ruin your event or day by booking with the wrong company. We have seen so many organisations let down by companies claming to provide similar workshops - so choose wisely.
