COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update, South Africa, 29 June


In line with the recent announcement from the South African government confirming the increase in restrictions in response to Coronavirus, we have taken the decision to close the events which have been open across South Africa with immediate effect.


This means that all events across South Africa are now closed for the foreseeable future.
