Events business left in limbo as furlough end nears


More workers are back at their desks, but the future looks bleak for many in the events industry.

TourLife works with bands and artists, taking them on the road throughout the UK and beyond. When Covid-19 hit, the business lost 85% of its income.

Owner Harry Parslow says the work “just vanished” overnight. Staff have been on furlough but the firm will consider implementing redundancies if the scheme ends before more events resume.
