    The events industry is currently ‘starring into the abyss’ due to the lack of clarity about the Government ban on gatherings of more than six people, according to the Telegraph.

    The publication reported that events organisers are experiencing mass cancellations within the industry, which supports 700,000 employees.  

    Jane Longhurst, chief executive of the Meetings Industry Association, said: ‘It hasn’t actually defined what government is trying to do, and there’s no clarity, and it has completely shattered any confidence that anyone holding events had.’ 

    If arts events were deemed against the law, the police have the powers to enforce these legal limits, including to issue fines of £100, doubling for further breaches up to a maximum of £3,200.
