Post a picture of yourself on Instagram or Facebook wearing red, tag three industry colleagues, and use the following text for the post:
My industry is at Red Alert and my job is at risk. The events industry is worth billions to the UK but we are banned from working and without urgent help we will all be out of a job for good. We need grants, not loans. We need an extension to the furlough scheme and an extension to the self-employment scheme. If you love live events, please share this. #WeMakeEvents
When people go live on Facebook or Instagram, the algorithm boosts that content. Help us to reach more people by using your phone to go live, repeat the same message as above and then describe why this matters personally to you. When you’re done, please add the hashtag #WeMakeEvents.
Please take the time to do both of these things and encourage your colleagues to do the same. The more we do, the better chance we’ll have.
Please use the hashtag #WeMakeEvents in the first sentence of the post then the following hashtags at the end of post:
#WeMakeEvents #LetTheMusicPlay #LightItInRed #RishiSunak #OliverDowden #CarolineDinenage #SkyNews #BBCNews #festival #festivalseason #livemusic #livemusicrocks #liveevent #supportneeded #glastonbury #festivallove #gigs #livegig #liveeventssector #covid19 #redalert
