The arts and entertainment industry has been hit particularly hard during the Covid19 crisis and, despite the Government’s promise of financial help to the sector as lockdown eases, many artists, shows and events are still under enormous pressure.
Lockdown UK has put a lot of companies under enormous pressure and some sectors are faring better than others. The arts and entertainment industry has been hit particularly hard and in order to survive this global crisis, are having to develop innovative ways to re-invent the way they work.
One such business is Music Heritage London which specialises in hosting guided tours and events re-creating the swinging 60s, travelling round some of the most significant music spots of the Capital in a double-decker bus.
Today I talk to Amy Mallabar, founder of Mallabakes, a home delivery service of expertly baked brownies, cakes and cookies.
She talks about the challenges of starting a new business during the most difficult time in modern history and why the COVID-19 lockdown has been the perfect time to take the food industry by storm.

But, more than that, Aman has done it in a thoroughly modern way, by using social media platforms as his launch pad and as a way of sharing the secrets he has built up over the years.
