QUESTIONS ABOUT CORONAVIRUS?
Government guidance is changing daily, and SAVVY is continuing to ensure we are working to maintain social distancing, keeping our studio fully ventilated, using hand sanitiser and cleaning in between each session.
We continue to recognise that these are strange times and are encouraging our community to respect the ongoing concerns and anxieties of others, while also taking responsibility for their own wellbeing.
IS SAVVY BACK?
we are very excited to be BACK AT OUR studio at fairfield halls.
However the safety of our members and staff is still our first priority, so we will continue to adhere to social distancing guidelines and will be conducting a phased return to our weekly groups. We will be contacting individual members to let them know their date of returning, and as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do get in touch with us.
WHAT ARE YOUR SOCIAL DISTANCING POLICIES?
WE HAVE PUT STRINGENT SOCIAL DISTANCING AND CLEANING POLICIES IN PLACE FOR WHEN WE RETURN TO THE STUDIO.
We have achieved both our See It Safely and Good To Go Kite Marks from the Society of London Theatres and Visit England and our policies and full risk assessment can be downloaded from our website.
Please click on the images below to download copies of our Returning to SAVVY policies and a full Risk Assessment outlining our measures for keeping members safe. We have also put together a short film showing our new policies for when we return to our studio.
If I’m not ready to come back will I lose my place in the group?
NO you will not lose your place in the group.
If you were a member on our register when we went into lockdown in March 2020 we will hold your place until the end of 2021.
I want to join, can I just come along to a session?
We don’t allow people to just ‘drop in’ and join in with a session.
If you want to join us, please call the office on 07391 997 030 (Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm) or email us at email@example.com
We can then tell you if there’s space in the group you are interested in and will send you an application form and some more details on joining SAVVY.
If you would like to come and tour the space and discuss anything with us in person please get in touch so we can arrange a time for you to meet with someone from our Welcome Team.
PLEASE NOTE: We are only accepting new members for our YounGrrr drama group at the moment.
I’m a former member can I JUST come back & join in?
i'M AFRAID NOT.
Due to high demand, we do not hold places in the group unless there are special circumstances and generally only for one term. In line with our Data Protection policies we do not hold details on members once they have stopped attending, therefore any past members wanting to come back will need to re-apply for a place.
I'm really interested in working with you. Do you have any vacancies?
we always advertise on our website & social media for any vacancies, including opportunities for freelance practitioners.
You can find more details here on volunteering and work experience placements.
IS THE SAVVY SOCIAL STILL HAPPENING?
... but not until social distancing has finished and we can hang up a brand-new mirror ball and celebrate in style!
