Venues affected by the Coronavirus

Coronavirus events and venues affected

Last updated at on Wednesday 18 March

Blackburn BID businesses and organisations have the health and safety of their staff and customers as their utmost priority and are working hard to follow Government and Public Health guidance so that they either continue to deliver services as best and as safely as they can, or take the difficult decision to close, postpone or significantly reduce/change their services.

This is a constantly changing picture, and news of venues and events being affected by the Coronavirus are reaching us thick and fast. We will endeavour to keep this page updated as we get information.  Please keep checking back for further updates.
