The Government has now announced which Coronavirus tiers will apply to English regions when the lockdown comes to an end on 2 December 2020.

The vast majority of regions are in tiers 2 or 3, which have fairly strict restrictions.

The MU has put together a guide detailing how musicians in England will be affected in each of the tiers, though we are seeking urgent clarification from the Government on some issues.

Please check which tier you are in on the Government’s website and then check our advice for your tier.

Be sure your voice is heard

Please take our latest Covid-19 impact survey so that we can directly challenge the Government’s claim that the gaps in financial support have almost all been plugged.

No musician should be left behind, help us help musicians by taking our quick survey now.
