1. Theatres can open, but not for live performances

What on earth are they supposed to be opening for then?

Not that I'm in any way annoyed about having had to cancel a trip to London which would have involved 2 theatre trips or anything.

The regulations surrounding theatres and music venues are actually worse than the regulations for pubs and restaurants IMHO.

2. Emergency money for culture 'won't save every job'

The government has finally intervened, but is it too little too late?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-53302415

A 1.57bn emergency support package to help protect the future of theatres, galleries and museums will not be enough to save every job, the culture secretary says.

Oliver Dowden said grants and loans would aim to preserve "crown jewels" in the arts sector, and many local venues. It follows several weeks of pressure, with industry leaders warning that many venues were on the brink of collapse.

Independent cinemas, heritage sites and music venues will also be eligible.

Mr Dowden said the grants and loans were all "new money" and were "designed to last through this financial year".
