A £1.57bn coronavirus lifeline for the arts is being promised by the government, but theatres and music venues could still remain closed until next year.

The emergency cash aid, in grants and loans, has been welcomed by leading figures from the arts, but there will be dismay that there are still no plans to resume live performances.

There are fears that many theatres, concert halls and other venues may not reopen until next summer, which would mean them remaining closed through Christmas – with no panto season.
