And Finally

And Finally…

If you need to contact me, please contact me only on this mobile number 07759 646507.
Please do not visit me at Dragon Hall. I work at different venues throughout the week and I might not be there.

It is essential that all events/workshops or classes are booked in advance. Dragon Hall is still following social distancing guidelines and most sessions are now fully booked. If you would like to attend an event, please ALWAYS contact me beforehand.

Please note that all payments for classes are paid online via our website. If you have any difficulty with this, I am happy to assist. But again, this must be done beforehand and booked with me.


Thank you for your support and cooperation.
