Coronavirus/COVID-19: Night Out
The Coronavirus outbreak has put everyone in an extremely
difficult situation. At the present time, the UK Government
has advised people to avoid gatherings and crowded places such as
pubs, clubs and theatres. This has obvious consequences for
Given current circumstances, we're asking promoters that have an
event programmed over the next 12 weeks (till 22nd June) to
consider carefully whether it should go ahead. Should you
decide to cancel the event, we'll relax our standard terms of
agreement and pay up to two thirds of the performer fee, for any
show costing £900 or less. For those shows costing more than £900,
we will pay our maximum financial contribution of £600.
There will be no payment required from promoters towards events
that are cancelled.
We have also taken the decision not to commit to any new
applications to the Night Out scheme during April, May and June,
unless the situation changes. We will continue to monitor the
situation closely and our hope is to re-open the scheme in due
course, in line with Government guidelines.
We know how much people value the activities promoted by Night
Out, and in these difficult times the enjoyment that these events
bring is needed more than ever.
We look forward to seeing performances reinstated as soon as it's
safe and advisable to do so. In the meantime, please stay
safe and we look forward to speaking to you again soon.
