Secure your place at the taster sessions
The taster sessions are open to all but places are limited. For this reason, you do need to register and we ask for a deposit of £5. The sessions are free and so payment will only be taken if you register but don't attend.

To register for a place at either location, please email call Dan on 020 3242 0239 or text TRI to 80878 (standard text rates apply).
