UK Hols and Theatre
We’re struggling at the moment with the huge volumes of messages we’re getting from Forumites about coronavirus and the impact it’s having on their finances. We’re a small team and we’re doing our best to manage this spike in demand.
It’s an exceptionally tough time for the holiday, travel and events industry, and we are swamped with questions about your consumer rights around cancelled concerts, flights, hotels, theatre shows etc.
We’re a small team and we want to make sure Forumites are getting the answers they need accurately and quickly. So for the time being, we are hitting pause on this board and redirecting everyone to the MSE coronavirus guides that contain all the info we have – these guides are being constantly updated:
Coronavirus Help & Your Rights * Coronavirus Travel Rights
And of course, we have the Coronavirus Boards on the forum:
Coronavirus Support & Help * Coronavirus Travel Help & Info
Coronavirus: Stay up to date with the latest from MSE
The MSE team is working extremely hard to keep the info we have about your travel rights, cancellation rights, sick pay (and more) up to date.

The Cinema Exhibitors Association Card is a national card scheme allowing carers to get into cinemas free when going with the person they're caring for, whatever the amount that person has paid. The card lasts three years and costs £5.50.
The person being cared for must apply. To be eligible you need to be in receipt of disability or attendance allowance or be registered blind.
To find a cinema where the scheme is operating have a look at the CEA's cinema list.
If you apply and don't receive your card within three weeks of sending the form call 0845 123 1292 and you'll be put straight through to the CEA Desk. Minicom users can dial 0845 123 1297.

Many thanks to MoneySaver Testee for the top spot. Back to the original post...
The Cinema Exhbitors Association Card is a new national card scheme launched in October through over 500 cinemas in the UK. This card entitles the holder to one free ticket for a person accompanying them to the cinema. The card holder must meet one or more of the following criteria:-
1. They are in receipt of Disability Living Allowance.
2. They are a registered blind person.
3. They are a holder of a Disabled Person's Railcard.
Application forms are available at all participating cinemas. The card costs £5 and is valid for three years from the date of issue. A listing of cinemas and further information can be found at www.ceacard.co.uk.
I received this information through a national charity magazine so am assuming it to be all above board and legit.
