Latest guidance on the route out of lockdown

All four nations of the UK are starting to open up again after lockdown, each with a different roadmap and timeline. 

Throughout May and June leisure-time music groups can expect to be rehearsing - and even performing - outdoors and in some cases indoors across the UK. However these routes out of lockdown are provisional only, with risk assessments and mitigations attached to each stage.

Making Music’s free coronavirus guidance tool reflects what the latest rules mean for leisure-time music groups in each of the four nations of the UK.

Making Music’s tool interprets guidance from:

  • The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) guidelines in England
  • The Arts Council of Northern Ireland document: In the Bubble of Our Making: Reopening the Arts in Northern Ireland 
  • The Scottish Government Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance for the performing arts and venues sector 
  • The Welsh Assembly’s Rehearsing, performing and taking part in the performing arts: guidance for a phased return
