UK – Coronavirus: theatres reopen with ‘seat out to help out’


Theatres and sports stadiums will be allowed to open without social distancing within weeks under plans being accelerated by ministers with the backing of Boris Johnson.

The prime minister and Oliver Dowden, the culture secretary, last week ordered officials to “move at extreme pace” to encourage crowds back into large venues.

The team behind the “eat out to help out” restaurant scheme has been reformed to draw up a “seat out to help out” plan to persuade people to attend cultural events once the restrictions are lifted.

One idea being looked at would see theatres and restaurants encouraged to team up to offer cut-price deals on Mondays, so those with a ticket that day could save on the cost of their pre or post-theatre meal. US SPREAD GOOD NEWS!
