We are reviewing the Coronavirus situation daily and taking measures around advice issued by The World Health organisation (WHO) and Public Health England (PHE).

We take the health and safety of all our guests and Studio Team extremely seriously and will continue to remain vigilant to government and governing body updates on the spread of the virus and will keep monitoring the situation.

Due to the current status of the COVID-19 outbreak we have decided to suspend events at Studio Kokoro indefinitely. We will be reviewing the situation and updating you as things progress.

Even when we reopen we do ask that you do not come to the studio if you have any symptoms, feel unwell or are in contact with any ill people.

If you are a carer or in contact with any vulnerable people please do not attend the studio for their well-being.

Please check event listings and this page for updates, as these could change daily.

Any urgent announcements will be sent out via our Newsletter so please sign up to that if you haven’t already.

Thank you everyone for your understanding.

If you want to support the studio during this time you can find our gofundme page here…

Did you know?

A refuse collectors can touch up to around 2,000 bins a day?

If even one of those bins were touched by someone who was infected then your bin could be too.

So as soon as you touch your bin to bring it back in…

I did not think of that until one of our bin men told Clover and yet once he had it seemed so obvious.

Take care of yourselves as always.

and…

Remember to wash your hands particularly after touching your bin.
