New rules for travel to the UK
The UK Government has announced a major overhaul for general travel rules. Under the changes, the current green and amber lists are to be scrapped with just a single red list of ‘no-go’ countries. This will leave countries essentially in either a ‘go’ or ‘no-go’ zone.

Testing requirements will also be reduced for fully vaccinated travellers as they will no longer need to take a pre-departure test when returning to England. Full details can be found at the following links:

West End LIVE
A huge thank you to everyone who participated in West End LIVE at the weekend – we had tens of thousands of people packing Trafalgar Square on both days for an incredible show with our best ever line-up – over 50 shows and acts and 830 performers and creatives. We’re sure everyone involved agrees what a unique, emotional event it was – truly a triumphant collective return for our industry. Full details of the weekend can be found in our post-event press release here, and the playlist of performance videos are available on the Official London Theatre YouTube channel here.
