Live music events given go-ahead to resume in Wales
Live music events have been given the go-ahead to resume in Wales by the Welsh Government.
However, venues will have to limit groups to a maximum of six people from six households, use one-way systems and follow ventilation guidelines.
Any events will be subject to risk assessments, and the guidance which will be published by the Welsh Government.
Other venues such as theatres, restaurants and museums were allowed to reopen earlier this month under similar rules.
A Welsh Government spokesman said: “Following extensive engagement with the sector we’re able to confirm live performances can return subject to full risk assessment for each venue in line with guidance in place for hospitality and our guidance.
“The suspension of live performance and events has been one of the biggest shocks to society’s sense of well-being and the arts economy.
“We continue to provide support for our music and arts sectors through our Cultural Recovery, Freelancer and Economic Resilience Funds”.
