What Next for Events & Theatre during sustained social distancing?

Published – 22nd May 2020

What Next for Events & Theatre during sustained social distancing? We know our industry needs urgent government support, but we wanted to talk about what we can do in this interim period. In late April, Gary and Zoe gathered together a diverse group of industry leaders to discuss the current challenges, the next stage of transition and what, if anything, we could collectively do to successfully engage with audiences; and help regenerate the industry whilst these social distancing challenges remain.

Read what was discussed here and a huge thanks to all of our amazing contributors.
