In line with Government advice we are not currently running any of our workshops, sessions or events. The welfare of our participants, audiences, artists and staff is paramount, and we also want to support the valiant efforts of our health service. Our latest announcement can be found here. 

If you have any questions about how this affects your Friends membership, please take a look at our FAQs here. We look forward to opening our doors and welcoming our audiences back as soon as we can.
