The best case scenario for 2021 is there are no restrictions and events can run as normal. If we look at the biggest summer events in the calendar such as Glastonbury, Leeds / Reading – both festival bosses Micheal Eavis and Melvin Benn are talking up the prospect of mass testing. This would be great news for festivals across Yorkshire like Sheffield’s Tramlines too.
However, I do think we’ll have some limitations on private events; I think perhaps under 1000 maybe 500. Perhaps that’s me being optimistic, as it means the vast majority of our marquee hire jobs will be back on but that’s what I really believe will be the case come April next year.
Slightly more analytical than my own predictions are Ramsdens Jewellery’s study how COVID-19 will impact wedding trends and marquee hire in Yorkshire by looking at Google data.
