According to Billboard reports and UK culture secretary, Oliver Dowden shared in a tweet. Normally around Europe or America, all events postponed but England has a different plan. The plan focus on phase four of the country’s five-stage reopening strategy for live events. Also, the social distancing will be enforced at the indoor performances, shows, and more.
This starts with England prime minister Boris Johnson talks at a press conference:
“From 1 August, we will restart live indoor performances to a live audience subject to the success of pilots, and we will pilot larger gatherings, with a view to a wider reopening in the autumn… From October, we intend to bring back audiences in stadia and to allow conferences and other business events to recommence. These changes also have to be made in a COVID-19 secure way subject to pilots.”
U.K. culture secretary Oliver Dowden added on July 17th on his Twitter account:
“The UK’s performing arts sector is renowned across the world. I am pleased that we are making real progress in getting its doors reopened to the public with social distancing. From August indoor theatres, music venues and performance spaces will safely welcome audiences back across the country.
Also, the audiences, performers, and venues will be expected to maintain social distancing at all times.”
