Music venues can stay open past the 10pm curfew – as long as the show has already started
23rd September 2020 (NME) However, some venues warn this will have a huge negative impact. Music venues in England are able to stay open after the new 10pm curfew imposed by the government as part of the latest coronavirus restrictions, provided that the performance has already started. As part of new rules that could last up to six months, yesterday (22nd September 2020) it was announced that pubs and restaurants in the UK would have to be closed by 10pm in a bid to stem the spread of COVID-19.
