Co-Vid & Events Sector - Timeline of Recent News


Covid-19 warning Graphic

Recent weeks have had an unprecedented and damaging effect on the events sector, so we thought we would give a summary of the developments here, as they happen. Hopefully there will be further announcements soon, to give certainty to a nervous events sector.

21st April 2020
Government confirms that events with crowds of more than 5000 will not be licensed up to the end of August2020. What does this mean for our sector? At least there is some clarity as the uncertainty was nearly worse. Realistically we don’t expect to see any large scale events until late summer or 2021. Change will be gradual and we believe that further clarification still needs to be given, surrounding smaller events and this is expected before 5th May 2020 #covid19#staysafe

Mandatory measures extended until 5th May 2020 #stayhome#staysafe
