On Monday 12th October, we – along with hundreds of other workers from the creative and events industries were very proud to come together in Central Bristol to raise further awareness of the #WeMakeEvents campaign. The gathering even made headline news – read The Times article here.

The campaign aims to highlight the plight faced by the live music, theatre and event industries during these current difficult times.

We were very proud to come together to cheer on The Survival Tour for their arrival into Bristol. Our Chairman Alastair Currie completed the Oxford to Bristol leg with the cyclists – battling through the Autumnal weather! At the time of writing The Survival Tour team of cyclists had already travelled over 20,000km in their journey from Newcastle to London. You can follow their progress here.

The ‘red alert’ gathering offered fantastic exposure for the campaign; with live footage being featuring on the local news in addition to being featured by both print and online sources.

As part of the creative industries, we wholeheartedly stand in solidarity with all those in the live music, theatre and events industries – highlighting the effect of coronavirus restrictions on livelihoods.
