Oliver Dowden – 2021 Comments on Pilot Events with Large Audiences

The comments made by Oliver Dowden, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, on 5 April 2021.

We’ve supported the sports and arts with unprecedented sums, but it’s now time to make that Great British Summer of live events a reality.
