Theatres Trust comments on Scotland’s Covid-19 update

Theatres Trust has responded to Scotland’s update on Covid-19 restrictions. Jon Morgan, director of the Trust, which is the UK’s advisory body for theatres, comments:

Continued restrictions in Scotland mean that the majority of theatres will remain closed, being unable to operate viably with social distancing rules and capacity caps in place. The recent announcement of additional funding for the culture sector from the Scottish Government is welcome and we hope that the funding will be distributed swiftly to those theatres most in need.
