News & Events



I was hoping that by now we would have been able to give some plan of action regarding Arts Awards Finals,
but with only vague hints coming from Government re theatre use, I’m afraid this is still not possible.
We will of course update as soon as we are able.

One bit of good news is that we will be booking exam dates from the 2nd week of October, with of course all
necessary precautions in place.   This could still have to be postponed if there is a serious second spike of
the virus.
Things are however looking brighter, so let’s be hopeful.

I hope you are all staying safe, and look forward to us all getting back to some kind of normality soon.
