The chief executives of Birmingham Hippodrome and Leicester Curve have joined other industry leaders in calling on the government to provide greater clarity about the reopening of theatres after Covid-19.
The government’s recently outlined five-step roadmap fails to set out either a timetable for reopening or make mention of a financial package to assist the sector in securing its future wellbeing.
Speaking about the roadmap, Birmingham Hippodrome Chief Executive & Artistic Director Fiona Allan (pictured) said: “We need dates to work towards in order to plan properly, or more jobs will be lost and more venues and companies close.”
Leicester Curve’s Chief Executive, Chris Stafford, said: “While good to have, unless this roadmap is accompanied by financial packages and a clear idea of timeframes, the status quo remains unchanged for many of us and the situation for our sector will continue to worsen.”
