Write to your MP

Thank you for taking the time to write to your MP about the live events supply chain. Here are some helpful tips:

• Tell them why you are writing to them. The government can’t see the live event supply chain, so we aren’t getting the targeted support we need to survive the pandemic, nor is there a realistic plan for reopening. You want them to use their power and influence to change that.

• Make it personal

• Include any local data or your own personal statistics. e.g. I undertook 123 projects in your constituency in the year before lockdown, contributing £123,456 to the local economy and employing 6 local people

• Be polite and keep it apolitical! We need them on our side. While the temptation will perhaps exist to ‘emphasise’ your message, it’s all to easily ignored if the language used is anything less than civil.

• Read the letter we wrote to Rishi Sunak, Chancellor of the Exchequer.
