COVID-19 Reopening FAQs

Following the latest government guidance (dated Monday 4 January 2021), The Place will be mostly closed to the public, and offer a reduced level of access to artists, staff and students until further notice. 


Frequently Asked Questions

Is The Place open?  

The Place is largely closed in accordance with the government's latest guidance in order to keep the public, students, artists and staff safe and play our part in the fight against the spread of the Coronavirus.  A limited number of activities are permissible for our students and professional artists and a skeleton staff remains in place to support this.

 

Can I attend classes?  

Yes, in order to comply with Tier 4 restructions, you can attend our programme of classes for children, young people and adults online. You can enrol on our 11-week spring term which will feature 13 classes per week. More details are available here.  

Plus, we have our Introduction series' which gives you access to six-sessions that introduce you to the fundamental principles of Ballet or Contemporary Dance. Click here to find out more.
 

Can I see performances?  

Yes you can but it won’t be our ‘regular’ programme. Instead of our regular programme, while we cannot fully reopen, we are planning a series of Festival weekends, details are available here. You can sign up to our mailing list to be notified of our innovative offers here or follow us on our social channels to keep in the loop.

Whilst the building is closed to comply with the latest government guidelines, we will only be able to offer space for hire for professional artists and companies to create, rehearse and film/livestream work behind closed doors. If you wish to discuss bookings later in the year, please contact our Visitor Services team on space@theplace.org.uk to discuss your plans.

No, unfortunately the bar & café remain closed as does the rest of the building. 

 

What is happening in the building in general 

We are continuing to review and progress our health and safety plans to make sure we can reopen fully when appropriate.
