Early Load-Ins: Early load-ins are not possible. For safety / precautionary reasons since the COVID pandemic, we have staggered rehearsal start times to minimise crossover and to allow for cleaning between bookings.
Load-Outs: Until further notice, it will be necessary for you to vacate your room by the time your booking is due to finish. For example, if you have booked 6pm to 8pm, you need to be clear and loaded out of the room by 8pm to allow time for cleaning before the next client can access the room.
