As of 19th July, the Lockdown restrictions finally ended in the UK allowing the hospitality sector to completely re-open with full capacity audiences and the return of live music and entertainment. For so many of our artists, this comes as a very welcome relief as many rely on the extra income to offset low living expenses. It is also a return to full business for our venues who have had to endure low capacities which has also lead to many of our pubs and clubs being forced to close.
Despite the lifting of restrictions, the Government is still advising the public to exercise caution while venturing out including considering wearing masks and observing social distancing.
