Update 14th June 2021: Today Boris Johnson has announced that the limit on the number of guests allowed at a wedding will be lifted on 21st June 2021. But the number of guests will now be set by wedding venues themselves based on social distancing. Wedding guests will have to be seated at tables with no more than 6 people with table service only. So the rule of weddings with a maximum of 30 guests will be scrapped.
Indoors dance floors are forbidden and the rules of no singing and dancing remain. But outside dancing (although strongly advised against) will not be illegal.
All other restrictions have been delayed by four weeks and will now be lifted on Monday 19th July 2021. This is due to concerns over the rapidly spreading Delta variant first identified in India.
Boris Johnson stated that numbers will be reviewed daily and if the number of jabs increased and the number of positive tests come down there is a chance that we could be back to normal two weeks earlier on Monday 5th July 2021.
