STEADICAM® SILVER WORKSHOP – July 13/14/15 2021 (Tuesday-Thursday)


Changes and Updates –Will be highlighted in Red.

16/6/2021 - As it stand at the moment, due to our low numbers, that unless we hear otherwise, we are able to proceed as planned with the original workshop dates confirmed by the venue. Doors will be open, along with exterior patio doors, plus the hotel already has an efficient air extraction system in place. If you are in any doubt with attending, please notify us as soon as possible. We ask that you take a Lateral Flow Test on Monday July 12th prior to attending - Do not attend with a positive or inconclusive result. We will have an event QR in place for the NHS Track & Trace system that you will be required to check in each day with. We will try to move all training outside, where weather is permitting. We look forward to seeing you in July.

15/6/2021 - You may have seen the news last night that the restrictions we had all hoped to have been lifted, have now been extended until 19th July. Unfortunately, our workshop was scheduled for the week before. We are in communication with the venue regarding alternatives, including the possibility to move the event outside, but we ask you to bear in mind that if a suitable arrangement isn't found, we may have to postpone the original dates and move them to alternatives. Your agreement to our terms and conditions on the application form did include Covid interruption details and how we would manage the situation in the event of restrictions continuing to be imposed on the event. We'll be in touch as soon as we have more news

14/6/2021 - We are awaiting news from the Governments announcement this evening regarding restrictions concerning indoor training, now that it appears the final stage of unlocking may be delayed. As soon as we have more news, and how this may impact our Workshop, we will post here.
