Important Event News


While we are starting to see some relaxation of lockdown rules we cannot yet be sure when we will be able to bring together such a large group of performers and their support team for out usual energetic and close contact events.


During 2020 we carried out a series of virtual training sessions and performances. In 2021 we have been able to start training again in person, starting with sessions in smaller groups and expanding to the whole team. We hope to provide some public performances later in the year but they will be heavily dependent on circumstances.


We wish all our members, supporters and friends the very best in these difficult times.
