Rapid rise in parties due to Lockdown lifting

June 4, 2021

Parties and Weddings are seeing a boom, but are they safe and protected?

The government’s roadmap is currently in its third stage, and rules of 6 people meeting have been lifted. Up to 30 people are able to attend weddings, receptions and wakes, as well as funerals. And most businesses in all but the highest risk sectors will be able to reopen.

However, travelling abroad is still seen as too difficult for many. Portugal has been axed from the green list, with all viable sunny destinations, except the Greek islands, now off limits. Therefore, many holiday-goers will be looking closer afield, with garden parties and venue bookings seeing a rapid increase.

Already, police have seen increased reports of illegal lockdown parties. Pop-up events are being organised on the fly and house parties are being broken up. The sector is expecting a boom of party-goers this summer, yet firmly reminds the people to stick to the government’s restrictions. June 21st is the date where nearly all restrictions will be lifted.

Garden parties and marquees events are currently good to go with many taking recent opportunity to barbeque, party and tan in the sun. Weddings are also backed-up with many couples having planned to get hitched this year due to postponements. Party planners need to be aware of the risks of hosting an event and consequences in regard to a claim.
