It is with great sadness the Centre of England Arts centre will be closed to all classes and workshops from the end of Friday 22nd March 2020.  

We are following the government's advice and want to limit the risk of the corona virus passing on to our tutors, students and their families.

All workshops will be postponed until this crisis is over and we will then find new dates or give full refunds to those who have already booked.

We are looking into the possibility of providing 'Virtual Classes' with some of our tutors, but this will take a bit of time and experimenting to set up.
