Maestro! offers a full range of international travel, touring and production solutions for a diverse mix of internationally-celebrated performers, arts management companies, orchestras, choirs, dance companies & special projects.
Following almost four months of suspended operations due to COVID 19 the Maestro! Touring team return to our offices today.
Ken Grundy, Executive Director, commented "Following the catastrophic damage of COVID-19 to so many lives, communities and economies around the world we hope that we can start the return to a 'new normal' for our business over the coming weeks. The performing arts community worldwide has been affected as badly as any section of the economy but we begin to see the tiny signs of recovery and hope to see some stability return as countries around the world develop strategies to allow live performance once again. I am extremely grateful to my team for the dedication and encouragement offered during their period of furlough and I look forward to us all being able to re-connect with our many clients in the UK and abroad in the days and weeks ahead".
Office hours for July & August will be:

The long awaited, much trumpeted and 'confusing as ever' advice from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office has at last been published. It includes a list of 59 countries and 14 British Overseas Territories from which WE will not be required to quarantine when we return to the UK.
What the advice completely fails to address is that two-thirds of the countries deemed 'okay' by the UK Government for Brits to travel to will not allow us in without some form of arrival travel restriction such as quarantine or self-isolation on arrival, a Covid testing regime or pre-travel test requirement, or a wholesale flight ban.
For example, Australia & New Zealand are listed yet both are closed to non residents for the forseeable future. Meanwhile places as close to home as Cyprus will not permit entry to anyone who has been in the UK in the previous 14 days, Austria requires a 'Covid Clear' certificate (issued within 4 days of travel) . The image above was updated 6th July to include Greece opening up access from 15th July (unless you are the father of the Prime Minister!).
The information has been researched by PC.Agency and AudienceNet and they have produced the helpful graphic shown above. The BBC have provided a summary which you can see my clicking the link below.
