Theatre and concert hall decision delayed

A decision on whether to reopen theatres and concert halls has been delayed until next week by the Northern Ireland Executive.

Venues were expected to reopen today (July 26), however, minsters want more time to consider the health implications.

They will meet again on Monday to make the decision.


Meanwhile, they have agreed to relax some restrictions considered ‘low risk’.

From Monday (July 26), 15 people from unlimited households can meet outdoors, and close contact services can open without the need for pre-booked appointments.
