Taiko Centre Closure – Covid-19
Mar 17 – Mar 31 all-day

Following the guidance issued by government, we are, with regret, cancelling all taiko activities at Seale Hayne this week, up to and including Monday 23rd March.

It may well be that taiko sessions will need to be cancelled for a longer period of time.  We may have no choice.  If there is an outbreak of Coronavirus at Seale Hayne, the owners have said they will close the site.  Even if the site remains open, we expect to have to cancel further sessions, but we need a little bit of time to figure out what this means for us.  As an independent, arts-education company we depend on our revenues from taiko classes at Seale Hayne.  Without this income, we will still have financial overheads to manage.  It’s a difficult situation, and we ask for your understanding and patience while we plan what to do.

Thank you for your support.  It’s a difficult time for everyone.
