Many events are facing uncertainty, but is Lovebox 2020 cancelled?

Festival season has been thrust into doubt for 2020, with many events facing the prospect of cancellation or postponement.

People across the UK are looking for updates across a variety of sources, with updates coming all the time. In a government statement earlier this week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson stated: “We need people to start working from home where they possibly can. And you should avoid pubs, clubs, theatres and other such social venues.”

Social distancing is being encouraged by Mr Johnson as much as possible which will help prevent further spread during these testing times. That has led to questions about our social lives.

While people are being urged to stay away from public gatherings, but places where they may take place are not forced to close, the likes of Cineworld and Odeon recently confirmed temporary closures following government guidance.

In the music world, tours are being postponed for the safety of fans, but with festival season around the corner, those planning to attend Lovebox 2020 are curious whether the event is still going ahead…
