The Government can't see us

It has been almost a year since the first lockdown. A year since live events have not been allowed to take place. A year that people working in the live event supply chain have had no way to earn their living – and faced an uncertain future.

But the Government can’t see us, and all too often, we have been excluded from their support schemes – leaving us without the help we’ve needed to survive since our industry closed down, and without a pathway to reopening.

Here are just some of the thousands of people whose livelihoods have been hit so hard by the pandemic.

You can see them, but the Government can’t.

The Government can’t see us

The Government Can’t See Us

A survey conducted this year found that 93% of individuals and businesses in the live event supply chain have seen their income fall dramatically as a result of the pandemic – 65% have seen a fall of over 50%, and 30% a fall of over 90%.

As a result, 50% of individuals have had to take work outside of live events to supplement their income. A third have been forced to leave – or are considering leaving – the sector. On top of that, 43% of live event supply chain businesses say they don’t have the resources to last until the summer.

This makes us one of the most heavily impacted sectors from the pandemic, but despite this we have received practically no targeted Government support. Put simply, the Government clearly can’t see the desperate human and economic impact the pandemic has had on the live event supply chain.

That’s why we’re calling for:

  1. Visibility in Government: the individuals and companies in the live event supply chain are frequently overlooked, therefore we need to be formally recognised by Government as a sector, and included in the data they use to target support.
  2. Support to survive: Currently, many in our sector have been unjustly excluded from financial support, this must change or we will lose our cultural expression and reputation for delivering world class events.
  3. Pathway to reopening: Despite knowing it takes many months of preproduction work to make a live event happen, we have been given no clear pathway to reopening. On top of that, the Government has refused to introduce a COVID-19 cancellation insurance scheme, despite the whole live events industry calling for this.

     

    We need you to write to your MP

    Thank you for taking the time to write to your MP about the live event supply chain. Here are some helpful tips:

    • Tell them why you are writing to them – the Government can’t see the live event supply chain, so we aren’t getting the targeted support we need from Government to survive the pandemic, nor is there a realistic plan for reopening. You want them to use their power and influence to change that.

    • Make it personal

    • Include any local data or your own personal statistics. e.g. I undertook 123 projects in your constituency in the year before lockdown, contributing £123,456 to the local economy and employing 6 local people

    • Be polite and keep it apolitical! While the temptation will perhaps exist to ‘emphasise’ your message, it’s all to easily ignored if the language used is anything less than civil.

    Thanks for writing a letter. We wrote our own letter to Rishi Sunak, Chancellor of the Exchequer.
