"We are currently discussing this (capacity) setting with promoters and hirers, but it appears unlikely we will see performances for live audiences proceed in our venues during September," the organisation wrote..
"Our team continues to work tirelessly and creatively with touring companies, promoters and hirers to reschedule performances and events that are unable to reach our stages at this time."
