Is En Masse accessible?
Strange Brew and Trinity Centre venues are accessible, with accessible entrance and egress, and toilets. The Cube, given the age of the building, is not accessible. However, if you are keen to come we will work with the venue to see what access arrangements we can make happen.
Please contact us if you feel comfortable to do so to discuss any specific accessibility requirements, or if you have venue specific questions. We understand that accessibility can mean different things, and want to be supportive so all of our dancers can experience the festival. We are also here to learn in the case we haven’t got it right.
What are the covid rules?
Rules around covid and making an event covid secure are ever changing. We will remain as up to date as possible with current government guidelines and will operate under those guidelines.
In case that “normal” life has resumed, we may as a festival choose to maintain some covid safe practices such as sanitizing stations or wearing masks while indoors. In a collective effort to keep everyone safe, we encourage our dancers to self test before coming out to En Masse.
En Masse’s covid approach will be sent out closer to the event in a newsletter, so keep an eye on your inbox.
