Making Music seeking clarification from the DCMS

Making Music is seeking clarification from the Department for Digital, Media, Culture and Sport (DCMS) about the new rule for social meetings of no more than 6 people.

Currently, our interpretation is that the rule of six applies to social gatherings. Organised music activity risk assessed and managed by organisations, outdoors or in Covid-19 secure venues such as our member groups’ rehearsals, is not social interaction.

However, we are looking to the DCMS to confirm that our reading is correct.

As soon as we have more information, we will of course let members know.

Please note: this applies to England only.
