It is a priority of my department to work with the arts and cultural sectors to address the challenges of reopening. We are committed to getting the performing arts sector fully back up and running as soon as it is safe to do so. We have published guidance to support the performing arts to engage in activity safely. This guidance was extensively consulted upon and can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/working-safely-during-coronavirus-covid-19/performing-arts We continue to work closely with the sector to understand further measures that can be used to help the safety of all who engage in the performing arts.
