As the daffodils were breaking through in Soho’s largest private garden on Monday, we were developing our plans to reopen the House and the Garden in line with Government regulations.

It will be Monday 12th April at the earliest that we can welcome members and a guest back to the Garden, and mid-May at the earliest that we can open the House itself. If all goes to plan and restrictions are eased from mid-June, we’ll be fully open for Pride, ticketed performances in the Chapel and hazy summer evenings. We’re working on plans to make sure you’ve got lots of opportunities to reconnect with your membership community and friends. Watch this space.

As the menu is adapted for a Garden only service and we reopen our booking system based on new capacity restrictions, we’ll share with you all the developments as they happen over the next few weeks. Your ongoing support and commitment to the work we do has helped us all this last year. Thank you.

With the building closed, we have adapted to support our participants and graduates. Our Employment Academy has never been busier. Over 30 people have attended Wellbeing Wednesdays, and with the next Employment Preparation Programme due to start in May, the government announcement has meant we are able to plan for the return of face-to-face training and support.

We can’t wait to see you all back at the club.
