EAST RIDING THEATRE PLANS TO ONE AGAIN LIGHT IN RED

23rd September 2020

On the evening of the 30th September, between 20:00 and 22:00East Riding Theatre plans to ‘Light in Red’ – joining the national campaign to create awareness of the lack of support for the live events sector.

‘Red Alert – Stand as ONE’, is a campaign to raise public and media awareness in support of the live events sector which employs over circa 1,000,000 highly skilled people in the UK, all of whom have had no work since March 2020 with little likelihood of restarting until Spring 2021.

During August, on the last national day of action – 700+ buildings within the arts, culture and events sector were ‘Lit in Red’ which has been shared online to an international arts community.

East Riding Theatre encourages the public to pass by the lit building on 30th September, keeping at safe distances, and continue the conversation by taking photographs and sharing online.

ERT’s General Manager, Sue Kirkman commented ‘We are very pleased to be able to support the ‘Light it in Red’ Campaign. ERT is an independent theatre with limited resources and, since closure, thanks to the support of locally based freelancers we have maintained contact with our audiences through our active online programme. The professional contribution of those freelancers will play a key role in the theatre’s successful reopening during 2021’.

ERT strongly feels the importance of raising awareness to the lack of support for thousands of freelancers within the live events sector and the dependence on their help to rebuild our nation’s great artistic industry.
