Preparing for the safe return of large events

Today a live gig was added to the programme of trials for the safe return of large audiences, taking us one step closer to a summer of live events that we can all enjoy.

  • Through the Events Research Programme, the government is  piloting events to help shape Britain's approach to how we allow the safe return of large audiences at venues and events in the future. 
     
  • A live gig at Sefton Park has now been added to this programme, and with attendee testing and controlled settings, this pilot will further trial approaches to managing and mitigating transmission risks at outdoor events, building on the evidence collected at other events including today’s FA Cup semi-final fixture at Wembley, with the evidence used to support the phased return of fuller audiences to venues and events.
     
  • These pilots are taking us one step closer to the return of large audiences at live events as we gradually get closer to enjoying the big events we have missed over the past year.
