**WE ARE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE**

Please keep an eye out on our blog and social media for updates. If you need to contact us, please email to info@thegarage.org.uk. Stay safe.

Following the announcement today we are to suspend term from Monday and postpone remaining sessions into next term. We have made the decision to postpone from Monday because our education week doesn’t finish until our GCSE students classes on Sunday.

Whilst these are challenging times for us all, we are going to populate our social media with fun things to keep cheer. If you don’t follow us, find us across the social platforms.

We will be in contact individually with our HNC and GCSE student to talk through the action plan for the end of term including work and activities to be completed out of sessions and on the VLE. At present term will recommence on 20/04/2020.

For those of you wondering, we have made a commitment to support our freelance artists and performers who are working with us; we have not terminated their contracts. We are hoping that if everyone is able to flex a little we can get through this.

We’re postponing sessions but not closing the organisation; keep an eye on the website and follow our social media accounts for updates and activity.

Unsigned, our annual music showcase, will now take place at The Waterfront on 12 July instead of 22 March.

My First Play: After the Storm, A Retelling of The Tempest, our interactive show for ages 0-7, a co-production with All-In Productions, is now running 8 to 13 June instead of 25 March to 9 April.

The Dance Showcase at Epic Studios, featuring performances from participants and our performance companies, will take place 14 June instead of 29 March.

Tickets for all shows have been rolled over to the new dates. Anybody unable to make the rescheduled performances will get credit to be used against future shows.

Also postponed are fEAST Theatre's The Canada Boys, scheduled for 19 and 20 March; and Hard-Nosed Cow's The Devil at Midnight, scheduled for 21 March. New dates are being confirmed, at which point a member of our front of house team will be in touch. If you've booked for either of these shows and didn't leave contact details at the time, please get in touch.
Further updates re The Garage will be published here, Twitter (@_TheGarage), Instagram (@thegaragenorwich) and the blog section of our website (thegarage.org.uk)
