The latest Brexit guidance

The uncertainty and lack of clear decision on how the UK will leave the European Union and on what terms has the potential to be more damaging than Brexit itself.

The UK entertainment industry operates across borders at many levels – rental companies, manufacturers, distributors and individuals all have the potential to be affected.
