Covid Statement

We cannot wait to welcome you back to our venue and are keen to ensure you feel safe during your visit. All our front of house staff will be wearing masks and we advise that audience members do this also while moving around in communal areas. You may also wish to keep your mask on in the auditorium. The hall and seating will be cleaned between all performances and sanitizer and spare masks will be available at all performances.

Arrival times have been staggered to avoid crowding in the foyer, please make sure you arrive at the time stated on your ticket. 

If you are feeling unwell on the day you are booked for we would ask that you not attend the performance. Please bear in mind that we are putting in place the measures we can to ensure all performers and audience members are protected during the performances,  but you are attending at your own discretion.

We will not be able to offer refunds or guarantee exchanges for other performances due to minimal performance dates. 

What is BODS?

As BODS, we hold one show annually which consists primarily of our upper school students. This show takes place in early December each year.  Details, including photographs, of past shows can be seen under the show headings and in the BODS Photo Gallery along with an independent report from our National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) representative who review our shows and the performance. 

Junior BODS has been running for the last few years and is for our younger KS3 students.  Auditions are held at the end of the Spring term with performances taking place in July.
