Staying Safe

Keeping everyone safe at the studios is our top priority. For adults and children aged 11 and over, we ask that you wear a face covering on arrival and when you’re moving around the building. There is also a contact-free hand sanitiser at the main entrance, on each landing and in all studios. These should be used on arrival, departure and after handling props.

If you or a close contact or family member tests positive for Covid-19, please email immediately and do not Theatre Academy classes.
