Statement on Coronavirus – COVID-19

Toonspeak places the safety of our participants and staff at the front of our decision making process. Following the most recent advice issued by the Government, we have taken the decision as from today Tuesday 17 March to cancel / postpone our workshop programme and all upcoming events

We will this week also be closing our office base but will continue to operate remotely.

In these uncertain times, we propose to update you on a regular basis. Communication will be made via our social media channels (Facebook and Twitter) on a Friday morning and will include any pending changes for the following week.  

Throughout our period of remote working we can be contacted on:

Please note that our communications may be restricted however we will endeavour to reply. 

Thank you everyone for your cooperation. We are constantly reviewing the situation in order to safeguard our participants, their families, our staff, our partner venues and all who work with us.

We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back, once this is behind us all.  In the meantime, stay safe.
