Today we are proud to be supporting the nationwide #WeMakeEvents 🚨RED ALERT🚨 campaign!
#WeMakeEvents is now at Red Alert to raise awareness of the UK’s 1,000,000 highly skilled industry professionals, all of whom have had no work for the past four months with little likelihood of restarting until Spring 2021.
Our industry includes a huge supply chain ranging from production, audio, lighting and video, to logistics, planning, transportation, and some of the world’s leading technology manufacturers.
Without additional support for the supply chain, the UK is in danger of losing its global position as a world leader in world class events. Moreover, all of our incredible creatives and technicians could lose their livelihoods for good.
Today is a “day of action” calling for the Government to “THROW US A LINE” before we lose the talent and expertise that is the envy of the world.
Across the country events will be happening to draw attention to the numbers of people and their livelihoods affected by the government closure of the events industry. Our industry was the first to stop and will most likely be the last to return.
This evening various performance venues, buildings and vehicles across the UK will be lit up in red as part of the campaign.
