Clarification for professional theatres on lockdown in England
Theatres Trust responds to further clarification for theatres in England regarding national lockdown.
Jon Morgan, Theatres Trust Director responds:
Theatres Trust is very pleased to hear that training, rehearsal, pre-production and streamed performances behind closed doors can go ahead during the November lockdown in England. This will be a huge relief for those planning December shows as it means that they can ensure they are prepared for opening which will contribute to saving jobs and theatres. In order for theatres to be ready to open in December, it is vital that the sector has suitable advance notice of the confirmed reopening date.
Note that this only applies to professional theatres as they are workplaces, so unfortunately it does not apply to amateur productions.
