UEA Students’ Union has announced that all gigs at their venues The LCR and Waterfront are cancelled until further notice.
On Friday, the university suspended classroom teaching and all public events until April 19 and on Tuesday this was extended to the remainder of the academic year.
UEA Student’s Union, who work as a separate entity to the university, has now also decided to cancel events at their venues and they are currently working with promoters to rearrange shows.
In the statement, released on the LCR Facebook page on Wednesday afternoon, they said: “The wellbeing and welfare of those involved in our operations, from our members and staff, suppliers, visitors and the amazing artists that visit us, is of the highest priority during this difficult time.
“Due to the development of the Covid-19 virus and the recent government guidance, we have taken the decision to close the LCR and Waterfront for the time being.
“This has not been an easy decision for us to make.
“We are working hard on getting a great programme of entertainment together across all our venues as soon as we can reopen.”
