Highland Hustle is keen to ensure that all attendees receive the level of support they require at an economical price.
What other costs are involved in setting up?
The usual costs of insurance, materials, licenses, music systems will be required. However, if you have much of this already it will not be an additional cost in all areas for you.

All Instructors will be given a basic level introduction to tax.
