Live music sector needs a 'restart date', the government is told 

4th January 2021 (BBC News). Concerts and festivals need government assistance to get "back on their feet," says the music industry trade body UK Music. It is calling on MPs to name a "restart date", after which gigs can go ahead, following months of cancellations. The body is also asking the government to introduce Covid cancellation insurance for live events, and to extend a VAT cut on concert tickets. The government said it was working "flat out" to support the sector.
