Booking for the BNSCW 2020 is now open.  We have returned to London for the workshop.
Dates: 10th - 22nd August - Venue: The Bridge Academy, Laburnum Street, London E2 8BA

COVID-19 UPDATE

We still hope to run our intensive summer workshop, The British National Stage Combat Workshop in August.  Obviously, whether it can go ahead depends on what the situation will be in London at that time and any restrictions to socialising that are in place.

We'll make a firm decision at the beginning of July if it's happening based on government recommendations and the requirements of training in any weapon, and let everyone know on our website and social media pages: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.  Your safety, as always in combat, is our priority and if we feel that the risk of introducing infection among workshop participants is too high we will cancel the workshop. 

 

Anyone who has booked for the workshop will receive a full refund on their booking fees.

We've also capped the booking fees for the BNSCW to the Early Bird discount rate as we realise the impact the pandemic has had on available funds.

We hope to see you at the workshop.  Check this space for further information in July.  In the meantime stay safe and well.
