The entertainment industry is totally closed down due to the restrictions of social distancing, coupled with the inability to predict when these restrictions will be relaxed enough to enable economically viable touring or one off events to be held once again.

The Government has been ‘too slow’ to respond to the needs of the DCMS sectors during the Covid- 19 outbreak with many organisations facing an “existential threat” to their survival. Ministers have consistently failed to recognise the scale of the challenge that Covid-19 presents to those who support the industry. There is a fundamental misunderstanding across Government of the vital social contribution of the support industries. DCMS remains one of the smallest government departments by budget and staffing and has seen one of the highest turn-over of Secretaries of State of any, with Oliver Dowden as ninth in the role since May 2010.

Action is needed now to provide support until such time as there can once again be the employment which has kept so many far enough from the governments notice that unfortunately causes the invisibility we now struggle with.

Show Boris how many he ignores.
