Please refer regularly to this page for Independent Drama's response to the Covid-19 virus. We are constantly reviewing this fast-moving situation and will update this page with any changes. As an organisation we receive no public funding and it is an unprecedented and demanding time for our staff and volunteers who work tirelessly not only to offer a range of training courses but to foster a supportive and friendly stage combat community.

We thank you for your support and would encourage you to check back from time to time for updates. All registered students on courses will be contacted directly with the information below.

Current Situation

We are taking a number of steps to reassure students of our position whilst endeavouring to maintain safe standards and cause minimal impact to scheduled plans.

We will not be running any drop-in classes where we do not control the number of students turning up, so will be cancelling our Sunday Combat Lab until further notice.

We are suspending all courses and workshops initially scheduled for March and April, and we will continue to review the situation.

On our Training Diary, we will be listing our courses into two categories:

Running - These courses will be running as advertised and we will still take bookings for any not sold out already.
Rescheduled – Due to circumstances beyond our control such as venue closures these courses will be rescheduled to a future date. These dates will be confirmed as soon as possible and we will keep in contact with individual students enrolled on the courses.

Creating Safe Spaces

Until further notice, we plan to follow the procedures below when courses resume:

We will continue to monitor the situation and review our policy if government guidelines or circumstances change.
