EDP online debate will cover the future of live venues in the region.

The short and long-term future of Norfolk and Waveney’s arts and culture sector will be the subject of the next EDP zoom webinar.

Stephen Crocker, chief executive of Norwich Theatre Royal, will be amongst the specialist panel to discuss the future issues facing our theatres, music venues and other forms of live entertainment.

EDP editor David Powles, who will host the 45-minute online webinar on Friday, June 12 at 11am, said: “Our live arts and culture scene is so important in terms of the happiness it creates, income it brings in and also for the numbers of people it attracts to the area.

“However, with social distancing still in force the immediate future of so many fantastic venues is extremely challenged. Our webinar will look at a number of issues, such as when and how can people to return to the venues and how can we all play a part in ensuring their futures are secured.”

Previous webinars have included a debate around school reopening, mental health, the economy and the future of football and Norwich City.
