Covid-19 - Update for Centre Users

Last Updated: 24/08/2020 10:00

We're delighted to confirm our much-anticipated reopening this September, following five months of temporary closure as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

The Centre will resume its programme of workshops from Monday 7th September, with more than 50 different sessions on offer during the first half term of the season.

Various changes have been made to the Centre’s programme to help ensure the restarted activities are compliant with COVID-19 guidelines, as well as QPAC’s own protocols. All workshops will need to be booked in advance, and students are required to take out membership with the Centre when booking their first class. All attendees will be asked to wear a face mask, unless exempt on medical grounds.

As we’re sure students can appreciate, reopening the Centre in the present climate necessitates some alterations to our working practices. Though it’ll be a new way of working for our regular students, we’re confident it will quickly become the new norm.

Weekly classes taking place in September and October are now on sale via the QPAC website and the Centre staff will be on site from 24th August to take workshop bookings and membership requests by phone.

In addition to revised procedures for workshops, new cleaning and safety protocols have also been implemented, with hygiene stations placed in each room and increased cleaning schedules introduced.

The full COVID-19 protocols drawn up by QPAC are viewable via our homepage, and any enquiries about the reopening can be emailed to
