Looks like the UK will be getting the opportunity to see live music after months of being locked down. The government announced that outdoor concerts, festivals and theater shows may resume beginning tomorrow July 11th. Just as long as they limit the amount of attendees and practice social distancing.
Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said “Of course we won’t see crowds flooding into their venues, but from July 11 our theatres, operas, dance and music shows can start putting on outdoor performances to socially distant audiences,” Dowden continued, “That means theatre goers can experience a live play for the first time in months at places like the stunning Minack Theatre in Cornwall, and music lovers can attend Glyndebourne this summer.”
Dowden went on to say this was “an important milestone for our performing artists, who have been waiting patiently in the wings since March”.
This is a huge step for the UK and one that many people are excited for. For those of us not in the UK, we will have to continue to wait.
