Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Visualisation of the COVID-19 virus.

Attending events

You must stay at home except for shopping for basic necessities, daily exercise, any medical need and travelling to and from essential work.

Most live events are being postponed or cancelled. Wherever possible we will publish updated listings to reflect this but we cannot guarantee we'll catch them all. We advise anyone thinking of attending an event to check with the venue and/or ticket provider beforehand – if in doubt, assume it is not going ahead.

Advice at this time is not to make unnecessary journeys.
