As soon as we are released from Lockdown I will be looking at re-starting my classes in Hull. I have two monthly classes based at Hull Charterhouse Hall, on the edge of the city centre near North Bridge. If the planned easing of Lockdown goes to plan I will be looking at restarting classes in July.

I am also looking at some other venues on the west side of the city, and I’ll post details as soon as I know more.
