Coronavirus update

Not accepting bookings until after the summer holiday

In light of developments with the coronavirus (Covid-19), and after considering the potential risks, we have decided not to accept new bookings until after the summer holiday in readiness for the 2020/2021 school year. If the situation changes, we will update this page with the latest information.

We believe that this is the right course of action given the number of people our workshops interact with across a diverse range of locations. The health and wellbeing of schoolchildren, teachers and outreach specialists is our number one priority, along with a collective effort to slow the spread of the virus.
