BACK TO NORMALITY: Liverpool’s Metro Mayor comments on Events Research Programme
Statement from Steve Rotheram, Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, regarding Culture Secretary announcement on Events Research Programme in Liverpool, London and Sheffield
“I’m pleased that Liverpool will be playing a key role in this vital research to help understand how audiences can safely return to events such as sport, theatre and gigs.
“Our city region is famed for its sports, hospitality and leisure sectors and visitor economy, which are worth over £5billion a year and support over 50,000 jobs.
“Re-starting this sector safely is not only fundamental to our economic recovery but also to our collective wellbeing, as we are hopefully able to start re-connecting with each other socially in the coming weeks and months.”
