We wish all our school communities and loyal customers the very best in these challenging times.
We closely monitor and follow government guidance for the Performing Arts, for Peripatetic teachers (those who move between schools), for schools, and for safe working practices. Prior to the current lockdown, the advice said:
"All pupils should have access to a quality arts education. Music, dance and drama build confidence and help children live happier, more enriched lives, and discover the joy of expressing themselves"
"Music, dance and drama can be undertaken in school so long as safety precautions are undertaken"
"Supply teachers, peripatetic teachers and other temporary staff can move between schools"
"Schools can continue to engage peripatetic teachers during this period"
"Out-of-school activities to support elective home education can continue "

Of course, Treehouse is not visiting schools or holding pulbic performances at the moment.
However between July and December we managed to squeeze in more than 100 live performances and workshops! We have adapted all our work and feel quite experienced at pandemic productions now. You can book ahead with confidence as Covid cancellations are 'Force Majuere', so get a date in the diary and we'll see you all soon.
The show must go on!
We are very grateful for an Arts Council grant which has allowed us to adapt our work for todays world.
We have been performing 'Covid-safe' in schools and outdoor venues since June.
We are very much open for business and taking bookings from April onwards
