COVID-19

Updated 20/03/2020.

COVID-19: In light of the announcements made by the government on 16 March, we want to reassure everyone that the health and wellbeing of our students and staff are of the highest priority. We are currently suspending the rest of the classes for the current class block that was due to end of 1 April.

Our office will be temporarily closed. The best way to contact us would be via hello@seachangearts.org.uk and Facebook Messenger and we will follow up as soon as possible, please leave a phone number if you require us to phone you.

For other news and updates, please monitor this page, social media, and email communication. We will be updating this webpage with further info as it comes.

At this present time, The Out There International Festival of Circus & Street Arts is still planned to go ahead on 19-20 September.

We continue to work diligently towards the festival for the people of Great Yarmouth and our endearing audience, as well as those working and contributing to our incredible sector.

We will continue to monitor the situation over the coming days, weeks and months and respond sensibly to advice from local and national authorities. We champion that social distancing is keeping us safe and decisions in the future will, of course, consider this as a priority.

We are deeply saddened that numerous friends and partners have had to postpone or cancel their events around the world. We hope by September, we can all come together and celebrate the resilience of our sector and our communities with an incredible festival; because by the end of this, we’re going to need it!

Over the next few weeks, we will use our platform to stay creatively connected, highlight engaging projects and act as a platform to support those communities affected in this difficult time.

Stay safe Out There, and wash your hands!

For the time being, please consider the health of others and maintain good hand, respiratory and personal hygiene. The NHS has created guidelines on their dedicated COVID-19 page: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
