All events will be free to attend, socially-distanced, Covid-secure and subject to the latest restrictions. Please bring your own face mask. Due to reduced capacity and NHS Track & Trace, most require booking in advance. See below for details about what's on and how to book.

Our in-person services will be capped at 70 people (25% of our normal capacity)
