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”.

“Get you out of here”

No problem – nobody will prevent your exit in the direction of the country you admire so much.

And good luck when you are there.

Yet Caernarfon Town FC is denied supporters for it’s Euro playoff, double standards by Welsh labour yet again .
Welsh labour perpetuating the North – South divide again
Could the denial of allowing Caernarfon Town FC supporters to attend such an historic event be due to the trinity of Plaid in Arfon :Council, MS, MP . I wonder ?

Mark, can I kindly suggest you go and do a bit of reading on Marxism and what it actually is before spouting such drivel. Many thanks Karl
