News: Theatres Trust comments on effect of new Tiers in England on theatre industry

Following the new Tiers announced today in England, Theatres Trust Director Jon Morgan comments on how they will affect the theatre industry:

It is a terrible blow for the theatre sector that so many large towns and cities in England are now in Tier 3 where theatres are not permitted to open. There are many theatres that we know were planning pantos and other shows for December and this news will be devastating for those organisations. They will have invested in rehearsals and other preparations for reopening and will now find themselves unable to recoup those costs, facing further financial strain in what has already been a catastrophic year.
