Function Venue and Dance-Hall

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

The Academy has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak and like many other organisations, we are making preparations to delay and mitigate the impact of the virus to protect our staff, customers, and everyone we work with.

As part of our contingency planning, we have adopted a response being led by the UK Government’s updates on the situation regarding the Covid-19 outbreak. The key stages being Contain; Delay and Mitigate.

Following the Prime Ministers’ briefing on Monday 16 March and the updates in the UK and Welsh Government’s guidance, we have made the following decisions:

  • As of 19th March, The Academy Dance-Hall will be closed to the public and will remain closed until we are advised that we can reopen. 

  • Any classes and events will be postponed until such time as we are advised that they can resume.

  • Our staff will still be available during the closure period to help with any queries or to take provisional bookings on future dates.
    If you need to contact a member of the team, please email or call 078 123 69702.

  • If you were due to attend an event at The Academy during the closure period please contact the event organiser for the latest information.

The health and safety of everyone who works at, or visits our venue is of paramount importance to us. We will continue to follow guidance provided by the World Health Organisation and the UK and Welsh Government and proactively support ongoing efforts to contain and prevent the spread of the virus. We hope that everyone will do the same, and we can all help speed our passage through these difficult times and look forward to welcoming you to some great parties at The Academy Dance-Hall Buckley in the not too distant future. 

We ARE still taking provisional bookings for dates from August 2020 onwards.  Though obviously any bookings placed will be subject to the above guidance and Emergency Regulations.
