A TRADITIONAL VILLAGE PUB
NO DANCING, LIVE MUSIC OR QUIZ NIGHTS
New coronavirus laws, which came into effect on 4th July, make it illegal for pubs to host singers, DJ's, quiz nights or other live entertainment. The guidance says venues "should not permit live performances, including drama, comedy and music, to take place in front of a live audience."
This is to stop "aerosol transmission" - from either the performer(s) or their audience. This guidance has caused huge concern among many in the arts industry but will also change things for some pubs. Dance floors in pubs and bars are also banned. "You should take steps to prevent close contact activities, such as communal dancing," the guidance says.
We will keep you advised on any developments and look forward to hosting our monthly music nights as soon as it's safe to do so.
