York 16th September, 2020


On Saturday 12th September, PQA York reopened their doors for the first time in over 6 months.

Having provided a whole host of exciting virtual performing arts activities throughout lockdown (including workshops with West End performers, filmmaking masterclasses with world class film directors and acting workshops with famous comedians), PQA York is finally returning to their regular Academy sessions.

James Aconley, Principal of PQA York had this to say about the day “We had a fantastic first day back at the Academy – it was just great to see all of our fabulous students again. After months of hard work ensuring that we’re COVID-secure, it was lovely to see all of the work come to fruition. We’ve got an exciting year ahead for our young performers with lots of performance opportunities, masterclasses and much more”.

James Aconley and their team of fabulous professionally trained teachers have been working hard to ensure that the Academy is as safe as possible. You can watch this short video about what PQA are doing to exceed the current Government directives. As an Academy, they have also introduced hand sanitiser stations, social distancing measures and our brand new online classes, PQA Live, in case we are unable to meet face to face. One PQA York parent was especially impressed by the first day back and said “Congratulations on the super re-opening of PQA York. I was thoroughly impressed by the measures taken to ensure our children are safe and able to enjoy their drama classes”.

PQA York is enrolling now, classes run on Saturdays from 9.45am-1.00pm and 1.45pm-5.00pm They are currently based at Huntington School, YO32 9WT.
