England’s live music industry welcomes new guidance on alcohol sales 

30th November 2020 (Express and Star). The live music industry has welcomed new Government guidance confirming venues under Tier 2 restrictions in England can sell alcohol. The Music Venue Trust (MVT) had warned post-lockdown rules stating venues could not sell alcohol would prevent them being able to hold financially viable events. The guidelines said alcohol could only be served as part of a “substantial” meal. The MVT said 92% of grassroots venues do not have the facilities to provide substantial food. The organisation has welcomed new guidance to allow alcohol sales at ticketed live shows.
