It is still safest to get in touch with us by phone or e-mail. But if you need to come, the office is open to members of the public at these times only. If you need more than a brief consultation, please ask for an appointment so that the necessary arrangements can be made.
We have done everything we can to make the office Covid-19 secure and ask you to help keep everyone safe by following the new guidelines:
One visitor in the office at any time. Please wait outside until the previous visitor has left.
Keep a safe distance (2 metres)
Please don’t come in if you have any symptoms such as coughing, sneezing etc
Wear a mask and sanitise hands on entry. Tell us if you genuinely can’t wear a mask
Provide contact details (these will be kept for contact tracing purposes only and the daily record will be destroyed after 21 days)
Please note that the office may occasionally be closed for appointments, internal meetings or staff absences/unavoidable commitments elsewhere. When the office is closed, please e-mail or phone and leave a message (we check on “closed” days and can call back if urgent).
No doubt you have been wondering whether this year’s panto would take place – we, too have been wondering, and after much consideration the decision has been made to cancel this year’s show. Auditions have already taken place, and rehearsals would be due to start in September. Nobody knows what the Covid 19 situation will be by then – we just have to be patient and keep safe.
So, the panto, Robin Hood, will now take place in 2021, and with your support I am sure it will be well received. If you already have a script, then PLEASE DON’T LOSE IT!! And maybe, just maybe, you will know a few lines by this time next year! No doubt Jemima’s enthusiasm will carry us through to next year, and we look forward to supporting her in directing Robin Hood.
Thank you to all our advertisers, your support is invaluable and enables us to put on a show, and we hope you will bear with us and continue with your support. Thank you to our audiences, your support is also invaluable and we hope will continue next year.
