The current government regulations relating to live performances are outlined in the document opposite, and includes the following paragraph in it’s introduction.
We have developed a five-stage roadmap to bring our performing arts back safely. These five stages of the phased return to performing arts are as follows:
Stage One – Rehearsal and training (no audiences)
Stage Two – Performances for broadcast and recording purposes
Stage Three – Performances outdoors with an audience and pilots for indoor performances with a limited socially-distanced audience
Stage Four – Performances allowed indoors and outdoors (but with a limited socially-distanced audience indoors)
Stage Five – Performances allowed indoors / outdoors (with a fuller audience indoors)
On the date of publication we are at Stages One and Two of this roadmap.
From the 11th July, we will move to Stage Three.
We expect to say more on a possible date for Stage 4 soon and Stage 5 in due course.
When stage 4 is announced by the government, performances in the main hall may be limited to a total occupancy of 30 while this remains the maximum permitted group size.
Stage 5 should allow larger audiences.
