A new survey commissioned by Music Venue Trust (MVT) among members of the Music Venues Alliance (MVA) has revealed the full extent to which Grassroots Music Venues in England are planning to re-open their doors from 17 May and beyond, based upon the timeline laid out by the government.
17 May signals the penultimate stage in the government’s roadmap to ease COVID-19 lockdown restrictions in the UK before a planned return to full capacity social activity on 21 June.
The survey reveals that over 2534 socially distanced shows are already on sale in 266 venues from 17 May to 21 June, with more than 4000 shows across over 400 venues predicted to take place during the month.
