This online training course condenses a broad overview of government legislation and guidance related to coronavirus (COVID-19) within the events industry. It will consider existing guidance and best practice learned from event sites during the Government’s Event Research programme (ERP) and since 'Freedom day' (19 July’s lockdown relaxation in England) .
In this two-hour module we will examine what strategies have and have not worked, and the next steps required for safe entertainment for the public. This course will be reviewed against government guidance and the content will be updated throughout autumn and winter as the impacts of COVID are felt throughout the events industry.
