CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).
Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021.

Mon, 6th Jul 20
Government to provide a £1.57 billion rescue package for the arts.
The government has today announced a £1.57 billion rescue package to help save the arts. Although broadly welcomed with some relief and gratitude, there are those who are holding fire on a response until they see the details about who, what and where will be supported. Some venues, such as the Nuffield in Southampton, have already announced that they will not be re-opening. On friday, the Scottish government annoinced a Performing Arts Venues Relief fund to help arts organisations and freelancers to survive.
