Navigating government guidance for amateur music groups

A webinar for anyone involved in running amateur music groups who wants to find out more about the latest government guidance to aid their planning. Three national music organisations, ABCD, the ISM and Making Music, joined forces to lead a panel session exclusively for their members, which covered the guidance for the performing arts, worship, community venues and education across the four nations.

Presenters gave an overview of the current situation and how it relates to amateur groups, and members who have returned to rehearsing shared their experiences. What are amateur music groups allowed to do? Can choirs still rehearse in community venues? What is allowed in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales? Find out the answers to these questions and more.

Please note this webinar took place on Saturday 24 October so some guidance may now be out of date.
