The Tobacco Dock Virtual project comes as clubs and venues remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The government reportedly has a three-step plan to move out of the current lockdown, with schools reopening to be followed by non-essential shops and, later, hospitality businesses. There is currently no clear date when live events will be able to return.
