CLASSES SATURDAY 3rd MARCH: Update Fri 2nd March. 8.30pm:

We have decided to cancel classes for tomorrow Saturday 3rd March, due to the potential aftermath of the recent adverse weather. As ever, the welfare of our staff, pupils and parents is of paramount importance, and thus although snow is not forecast, travel is likely to be hazardous with icy roads etc, and so we have taken this decision in the best interests of everyone. Classes/rehearsals will resume Sunday 4th March unless a significant deterioration of weather conditions ensues, in which case an update will be posted here and on our Facebook page.
