COVID-19 Intelligence: Arts, Culture, Tourism and Hospitality

This report focusses on the data and intelligence gathered on the arts, culture, heritage and tourism sectors as part of the wider COVID-19 evidence base.

In order to inform the North East LEP region's planning for economic recovery, reports collating up to date economic and labour market intelligence relating to the immediate and longer timer impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in the North East have been produced. 

An initial report in May 2020 was received by the North East LEP Board in order to present the latest position for the North East economy. This was then repeated in September 2020 and the report can be viewed here.              

Drawing on official data, sector consultations, regional surveys, and insights from Local Authorities, academics, and other groups, the evidence presents an overview of the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on the North East economy, and views and insights on projected impacts and opportunities over the longer term drawn from these sources. Reports will be updated on a regular basis to ensure the latest available intelligence informs the LEP’s economic response to the pandemic.

This report is a complimentary summary report that focusses on the data and intelligence gathered on the arts, culture, heritage and tourism sectors as part of the wider evidence base. This is part of a suite of sector specific summary reports that will be published on the North East Data Hub.
