    Coronavirus (COVID-19) - March 2020 update

    During the past few weeks, the YAT Trustees have been monitoring the advice and guidance provided by the UK Government and Public Health England, to ensure that we are adhering to the directives around Coronavirus (COVID-19).

    Earlier this week we made a decision to suspend The Snow Queen's rehearsals pending a review by Hampton Hill Theatre operators Teddington Theatre Club in line with the above guidance. They have today informed us that the theatre is to close it's doors with immediate effect to performance groups and as a result we will no longer be able to stage the production at their venue in mid-April 2020.
