The events sector urgently needs further government support to survive the COVID-19 crisis.
Without major immediate support from government, the entire live events sector supply chain is at risk of collapse. We have seen our friends and colleagues facing redundancy, and business having to permanently close their doors.
Red Alert is a campaign to raise public and media awareness in support of the live events sector which employs over circa 1,000,000 highly skilled people in the UK, all of whom have had no work for the past four months with little likelihood of restarting until Spring 2021.
The campaign is being run by a large and growing industry collective of trade bodies, businesses and freelancers affected by the shutdown all working together. It spans online and social messaging, video, case studies and legal outdoor events to gain media attention, with specific activities occurring on August 11th.
Our aim is to have financial support extended for the people and companies in this sector until they can return to work. So join now the collective efforts to get the industry’s voice heard, calling for sustained immediate financial support by visiting #WeMakeEvents. Watch. Share. Record. Write.
