It has been reported that the operator of Perth Concert Hall, venue for the Scottish Championships, Scottish Open and Scottish Youth Championships may be forced into making redundancies in is part time and full time staff.
Horsecross Arts stated that around 70 part-time and 50 full-time employees could be affected as government aid winds down and the venues remain closed in the immediate future.
Speaking on Radio Scotland, the Chief Executive Nick Williams said that that 70% of income from box office takings, conferences, cafes and bars was in his words "turned off"when the venue closed its doors in March.
He went on to say that the venue was being forced to look at redundancy consultations, "â€¦to enable us to come out the other end and rebuild"and that the situation was not being helped by a lack of any firm guidance from either the Scottish or UK governments.
