Restrictions in Northern Ireland mean that you must stay at home apart from a number of essential reasons, including essential shopping, work and care. The current regulations are in place until 6 February 2021, but will be reviewed on 21 January. During this time it is not permitted for indoor gatherings to take place but up to 6 people from a maximum of 2 households can meet outdoors while maintaining social distancing measures.

Most cultural venues are closed, though theatres and concert halls are permitted to open for rehearsals or a live recording without an audience. There is no specific differentiation between professional and non-professional rehearsals in the guidelines provided.

During this period, remote and digital activities can continue and groups can take steps to plan for a safe return to certain activities as and when restrictions are eased further in the future.
