The Peacock and the Tortoise will close its doors on 27 November 2021.  After 10.5 good years, we do not attract the turnover anymore to make this into a profitable business.  After the pandemic, people are still careful to come out and we do not feel we can hold profitable classes anymore.  We are sad to go.
