Today (11 August 2020) the live events industry across the UK is coming together in solidarity for #WeMakeEvents.
A series of creative actions across the UK as well as hundreds of venues turning their lights red (Light It In Red) to symbolise the industry going into red alert.
A huge number of highly skilled and experienced people make their living from event production, everything from audio, video, lighting, planning, and so much more.
Over 70% are freelancers, and therefore do not qualify for any level of State or Government support.
Without these people, there would be no shows and events for the artists to play, so we urge the Government not to forget the events sector and to provide help and support until the live sector can return in full.
