How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

If you have any questions or would like more information please contact us at 


What should I bring to the workshop? 

Please bring a bottle of water, or a bottle to fill up. We will be moving a lot during both workshops and it is important to stay hydrated. We would also suggest bringing some snacks to keep energy levels up. Some people also find it useful to bring a note book and pen to make notes. 


What should I wear? 

We suggest you wear clothes you feel comfortable in but also have freedom of movement. Please try and avoid clothes with lots of studs or belts with large buckles. If you wear jewellery please leave this at home or be prepared to remove it during the workshop.  Stage combat can bring you into close contact with others so we also recomend bringing with you some antiperspirant as we all start to smell after a while.
