TYNE THEATRE: Grade I listed venue misses out on recovery funding
Tyne Theatre & Opera House - Grade I listed venue misses out on recovery funding.
So far, we have been able to stick to the roadmap set out by the Prime Minister for leaving lockdown. From the 17th of May it is hoped that indoor mixing will be allowed to resume with the rule of 6 still in place. This date is also when large venues with enough space will be allowed to open in some capacity, such as cinemas and theatres.
But there are some new concerns over the Indian coronavirus variant, that has seen an increase in infections over the past couple of weeks despite a general decline in cases across the country. Much of the entertainment industry is relying on being able to open again next month to avoid financial ruin, especially those who have been unsuccessful in their bid for government support.
The Tyne Theatre and Opera House has been hugely disappointed to learn that they've missed out on the second round of the Culture recovery fund.
