Over 300 creative organisations sign open letter to the Prime Minister
The organisations demand Prime Minister delivers on his promise to fix the Brexit crisis for creative industry.
An open letter coordinated by the Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM) has called on the Prime Minister to deliver on the promise he made to the Parliamentarians Liaison Committee (24 March) to fix the crisis facing the creative industry in the aftermath of the Brexit trade deal.
The letter has been signed by over 300 organisations from across the whole of the creative industry, including Association of British Orchestras, British Fashion Council, British Arts Festivals Association, Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, Glyndebourne Productions Ltd, PRS for Music, Royal Shakespeare Company and UK Music. The coalition warned that if the Prime Minister failed to act, “work will be lost and businesses will go under”.
