COVID 19 Health and Safety Measures

All Actors Studio staff have completed COVID-19 safety awareness training to ensure the safety of our team and attending students. 

Staying Alert and Safe

An Actors Studio Covid Marshal will be on duty at all times to ensure Covid 19 safety measures are met and maintained.  For classes not held at Pinewood Studios, the Class Tutor/Director will also act as the Covid Marshal for Actors Studio.

You must not attend your workshop/course/filming session if you have COVID–19 symptoms. We will reschedule your booking if you cannot attend due to COVID-19.
