Guidelines for Year 8 & 9 Devising and Physicality Workshops:
Workshops are available across the UK all year round. Please provide your preferred date in the form below and we will contact you to confirm availability. If the date is unavailable, then we’ll work with you to find an alternative.
2 hours only
To be held at your school or venue.
The space must be of reasonable size (approx. 10m x 10m), be warm and have a suitable floor for exercise (i.e. sprung or wooden floor, NOT carpet or concrete). Please ensure that the floor has been swept and that there are no hazards in the space.
2 hours - £250 + VAT
(+ travel expenses + accommodation and/or subsistence where needed + VAT)
An additional £60 will be incured for travel that exceeds 4 hours each way to cover the cost of Practitioners' time.
As a VAT registered company, we have to apply VAT for recharges that we invoice for. Even though there is no VAT on travel itself, as we are recharging you for it, we have been advised by both the Inland Revenue and our accountant that we must charge VAT on travel reimbursements.
Should you have any queries about this, information about this is detailed in on the HMRC website here:
Return to Face-to-Face Engagement – Covid-19
As we return to face-to-face engagement, it is important that our Frantic Practitioners understand and follow your school’s Covid-19 Guidelines & Policies. As such, the Host must send a copy of its Covid-19 Risk Assessment for Practical Drama Workshops and its Covid-19 Guidelines to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We ask that you ensure the following:
Your school/organisation Covid-19 Guidelines are sent ASAP to email@example.com
Your school/organisation Covid-19 Risk Assessment for practical session is sent ASAP to firstname.lastname@example.org
Face coverings are worn if require by government guidelines (unless exempt) during the workshop and in public areas
Social distancing is maintained at all times during the workshop between the Practitioner and the participants, and the Practiitoner and the Host
Social distancing is maintained by all if require by government guidelines
The room/venue is well ventilated during the workshop
The room/venue is thoroughly cleaned and all surfaces (incl. door handles, music systems and light switched) are wiped down before and after
The room/venue must be adequate size for all participants to maintain social distance
Students/participants must not share props/equipment during the workshop
You MUST inform email@example.com if a participant has tested positive before the workshop, so the session can be postponed
We will also require all our Frantic Practitioners to complete 2 lateral flow tests prior to the workshop, to ensure that you and your students are protected.
The Frantic Practitioner may wish to remain masked and socially distanced for the duration of the workshop for their own safety.
Frantic Assembly reserve the right to postpone or cancel the workshop should the Host not provide their Covid-19 Risk Assessment and Covid-19 Guidelines.
Rescheduling & Cancellation:
If the Host reschedules the booking with less than 10 working days’ notice, the Host must pay a £50 administration fee.
Both parties should endeavour to avoid cancellation. If cancellation is unavoidable both parties should liaise to rearrange an alternative date for the workshop.
However, if the Host cancels the booking more than 21 days in advance and an alternative date cannot be agreed, the host will not be charged for the workshop. If the Host cancels the booking less than 21 days in advance of the workshop and an alternative date cannot be agreed, the host must pay 50% of the total fee. If the Host cancels the booking less than 7 days in advance of the workshop date, the host must pay 100% of the total fee.
In the instance that a workshop is cancelled by Frantic Assembly and an alternative date cannot be agreed, the host will not be charged for the workshop.
Additional Covid-19 Clause
If the Host needs to reschedule the workshop due to Covid-19 restrictions or implications, Frantic Assembly will work with the Host venue to find an alternative date within a calendar month of Covid-19 restrictions being lifted. The Host will not be charged for this amendment.
Age 12 + only. Participants must be made aware of the physical and movement-based nature of the workshop, prior to the workshop. Frantic Assembly must be informed of any special needs or medical requirements in advance.
