In response to the UK Government announcing further COVID restrictions in a press conference this evening (Wednesday) , Mark Dayvd, the CEO of Music Venue Trust , which represents over 900 grassroots music venues has issued the following statement:

Whilst this is obviously a blow to the progress in the battle against the virus, we are pleased that the government has listened to the grassroots music venue sector and adopted a Covid Pass policy that recognises testing. MVT’s #TakeaTest policy has been extremely successful in limiting infection incidents in grassroots music venues, and we welcome the news that this has been recognised in the new policy.
