We've updated our COVID-19 guidance for choral leaders

We've updated our detailed guidance for choirs and conductors to reflect the latest government guidelines for England. Our practical guide and risk assessment guidance are available to everyone.

Our guidance page includes a list of suppliers of singers' face masks.

Direct links to the relevant government guidance for choirs is also on our COVID-19 resource pages. There have been some updates to the community facilities guidance though it could be clearer - there is more detail and links to ACRE (Action in Communities in Rural England) in our guidance which we hope is helpful for anyone struggling with venue hire.

We plan to add guidance for N. Ireland, Scotland and Wales soon! There is more useful detail for groups in devolved nations on Making Music and Incorporated Society of Musicians websites.

New government guidelines published for second lockdown in England
In light of the Prime Minister's announcement of a second lock-down for England from 5 November to 2 December, the DCMS performing arts guidelines have been updated (today, 5 November) and confirm the earlier advice that no non-professional activity can take place during this time. Professionals may continue to rehearse and train, and perform for broadcast or recording purposes.

Revised guidelines released for Performing Arts
The Government's Performing Arts guidance was updated last night. We are reading it carefully and will post an update later, however it confirms that amateur choirs and groups can continue in England, as previously advised in the government's Coronavirus FAQs, despite confusion earlier in the week.

New government guidance
The governments general social guidelines for England were updated late last night, 22 September. We hope that the performing arts guidelines will be updated soon to reflect these and will be asking for any clarity that's needed as a result.
