Following the Government’s directive to close all public spaces due to the ongoing threat from Coronavirus (COVID -19) we are sadly forced to announce that we will close until further notice - this includes the closure of the CUBE Café and our outreach and community work. Our highest priority at this time is the health and safety of our participants, students, audiences, customers and employees. In taking this action we are following government, NHS & Public Health England guidance.

Though we are closed we do plan to return as soon as possible and will be monitoring the situation closely to manage and facilitate the re-opening of the building once the crisis becomes manageable and safe for the public. We will let customers know as soon as events are on sale and online.

During our closure you will be able to find several points of contact for Déda via our social media outlets: FacebookInstagramTwitter and YouTube and via our mailing list.

Please keep a lookout for updates on our status and developments online.
