Social Media Video!
Want to feature in a social media mashup video which will raise all of our spirits right now??
We are so excited that the incredible writer Cathianne Hall from ITV and BBC has written a poignant script for us all at this time, which when read out by many, the final video will be a mash-up of the whole script, read out by many lovers of music, bookers, agents, technicians, engineers, venues, audience members and musicians and we invite YOU to take part in it too!
We hope it will remind audiences why live music is so important and also lift the spirits of many working in the arts - hang on in there, we will get through this, together.
Bring us your smiles and record yourself reading out the script on the below page, send it back to us by October 18th with your social media handles and we will tag you in it when it goes live!
Please share this with anyone who would love to be in it, the more the merrier!
