Like many small business owners, Paul Goldsmith, who runs Pyjama Drama Mid Norfolk, found himself facing an uncertain future when schools, nurseries and public venues closed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Mr Goldsmith said: “I was devastated, not only because I didn’t know how my small business would survive, but also because I knew I’d really miss seeing all the children every week, and how my work inspires and develops them.”

He said: “Many customers have started to include it as an after-school or weekend session, or indeed as part of their home schooling curriculum.
