The Arts and Entertainment Industry was one of the first to be hit by social distancing restrictions, it has suffered enormously throughout the lockdown and will be one of the last to recover.

The Arts and Entertainment sector is vital to our economic recovery. It is time that we gave back and supported the industry that gives so much to our social fabric and cultural identity.
