  • If schools reopen rehearsals will resume at the usual time. 

  • Depending on government guidance several options for performance opportunities are in place, including a potential holiday course at the end of July or August, or even rehearsals and performances at the beginning of September.

BYMT is committed to ensuring that its resources are available to ALL. Therefore, instead of our usual termly fees, we would ask that you make a donation if you are in a position to do so.

There may be an additional charge should rehearsals / performance be possible at BYMT Centres ... more news as we get it!
