HOPING FOR A SUCCESSFUL SUMMER: Festivals are given the green light, but could a new covid variant scupper plans?

 

“We’re really looking forward to coming out of this situation and hopefully rebuilding the industry” the words of one leading light in the live events sector.

The roadmap is providing huge hope for the next few months, with many hoping the relaxation of social restrictions on 21st June comes to fruition

One of the live events Pete and his team look after is MADE Festival - and it’s hoped the lineup, including the likes of The Streets, Wilkinson, Sky FX and Horse Meat Disco - will provide some much needed escapism

But it’s July 31st date is pinned on whether the uk can stick to its roadmap out of lockdown - Dr Sarah Jarvis warns us to head the current guidance - with the threat of new covid variants still very much at play

It’s a matter of hours before Chancellor Rishi Sunak will deliver the budget - and having already spent over £300bn in the fight against covid, could more cash be heading to the sector?
