    The ones I see struggling are the 200 plus weddings, in huge venues, with lavish extras, and the Full Wembley Rig. I reckon many big venues may even fold, so for the foreseeable future " small is beautiful".
    With the moveable wall feature in my venue, that's a distinct possibility, to create smaller venues. Don't want to use the real smalledt room as that's upstairs! As Peter knows.

    I've not had any contact from my venue (no change there then) but I have still got four bookings left on the table for 2021. All are postponements from 2020 and the earliest currently is in July.

    Mrs W, ever the pessimist thinks that I will never go back to working there. I've told her that, as soon as its possible, I'll be booking a PAT test and getting the gear out and checked over. Might need a refresher as to what button does what too!

    Some of us were foolish enough to PAT our equipment last April

    We PAT'd at the start of March. Money well spent, for one gig it got used.

    Never mind the Helix we bought and also only got used on one gig...

    You'll have to have all the kit ready for a flyer, fully certified, just in case. Sad to say, I can understand your dearly beloved's scepticism.

    And some of you could PAT the kit every week, as you offer that service to others, I seem to remember.

    It reminded me to check my PAT testing M/C only to find out its own calibration certificate has expired
