The British summer is shaping up to be a great one with the UK gearing up for gigs, festivals and games. In sport, The Euros, The Olympics, and Wimbledon are just some of the nation’s most loved tournaments on the horizon we will be enjoying either at home, or for the lucky supporters, back in the stadiums. For music fans too there’s a chance to see your favourite bands in person or for those who like a laugh, the opportunity to go along to a comedy club for a well-earned laugh.

As England prepares itself as one of the host nations for the delayed Euro 2020 tournament, the UK public are beginning to get excited about the chance to once again revel in live sport and entertainment with more than half (59%) having their heart set on going to live events.

In fact, we are intending to go to two big events on average over the next year. The findings found 20% want to go to the theatre, 19% want to attend music concerts, 18% want to see live sport, 14% say they want to go to a festival and 9% comedy gigs according to the findings from the Nationwide Building Society.

Aston spoke to Nationwide’s director of digital James Smith to discuss about how you can protect yourself against online fraud as the world opens up and how changes to the Secure Customer Authentication will make staying safe online seamless, if you keep your information up to date.
