COVID-19 Read the latest on social gatherings

Following a rise in coronavirus cases in England the number of people who can attend social gatherings has changed. 

Any gathering of more than six people in England will be illegal from Monday (14 September), unless it meets one of a limited list of exemptions. Failure to follow the rules could result in a fine of up to £3,200.

This applies to gatherings both indoors and outdoors.

The new rule does not apply to households or bubbles of more than six, or gatherings for work or education.
