TOGETHER WE STAND AS ONE. #WeMakeEvents across the Globe. 30/09/2020
Entertainment events around the world have been devastated, from major festivals, tours & landmark theatres, to grassroots venues to all the PEOPLE who make it happen!
Without major immediate support from the UK government, the entire supply chain is at risk of collapse.
The UK Events Industry is worth £84bn & employs more than 700,000 people but is rendered unviable by current gov restrictions. Until events are deemed safe to return, we implore the gov to take appropriate action to safeguard this most valuable of industries so it can play its significant role in the UK’s economic & cultural recovery.
I braved it out and stood in the torrential rain at Sandbanks for Luke Jerram's 'In Memoriam' for Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival from 7-9pm and the Bournemouth Pavilion Theatre lit up in Red at 9.30pm getting completely soaked.
IT WAS WORTH IT.
I love this industry and I won’t see it be torn apart by some ignorant politicians with their cavalier “I’m alright jack”, “get a proper job” and “only support ‘viable’ jobs” attitude!
‘First, they came for’ is how it starts...
I will not be silent about this & will stand out in the torrential rain every day if I need to.
