Please note the following hygiene and physical measures that will be implemented in the Space. We’ll be heavily reliant on your compliance for these measures to be effective in maintaining your safety. 

Together, we will find a rhythm with our own collective behaviour that ensures we follow best practice in keeping ourselves and other safe, focusing on hygiene around the flow of people in and out of the building.

We’re extremely lucky that we have three front doors to the building and two separate studio spaces which allows us to operate a strict & safe protocol for usage.
