Music Centre closure: update 24 July 2016

The directors of the Centre announced on 2 June that with the deepest regret and disappointment, the Centre will have to bring its activities to a conclusion after the Summer School in August and letters were sent out to all those involved informing them of the situation.

Since the news was released, we have received a number of telephone calls and emails expressing dismay at the announcement and offering assistance to us.

We continue to explore whether it is possible to continue with some provision into the autumn term in another location but so far there has been insufficient clarity for us to make any futher public announcements.

Please therefore continue to keep an eye on this page and we will provide further information as soon as it is possible to do so.

For the original announcement 2 June 2016 see this page.

For the later information release 7 June 2016 see this page.

Summer School

Details of the Summer School taking place from 1 to 5 August 2016 have now been published and are being circulated. Rock School, Dance and Sewing activities for students aged from ten to sixteen will reflect a tribute to David Bowie.

At present (24 July) it is intended that this should go ahead as planned.
