LIVE BIZ FIGHTS REOPENING DELAY
6/9/21

 

The live entertainment sector is pushing back against the potential delay in the U.K. Government’s proposed opening date of 6/21 due to the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19. 

The last stage was scheduled for 6/21 when nightclubs and venues were set to open, which could be delayed by up to four weeks. The cap on large-scale events was also set to be dropped on that date alongside guidance on working from home and mask-wearing. A decision is expected on Monday.

The news has been met with dismay from those in the live entertainment sector. The Night Time Industries Association is “aggressively” pushing back on any changes to the roadmap, pointing out that a delay would be “catastrophic” for the businesses that have been locked down since March. Alongside key partners within different sectors, the org intends to challenge the Government if the decision goes against opening on the 21st.
