Ask your MP to support theatre and the arts

Bectu have organised a Panto Parade which is taking place on Wednesday 30 September to draw attention to the damage that is being done to theatre and live events as a result of the pandemic and the government’s failure to provide timely support for the sector.

Pantomime dames, creative workers and people excluded from government support during the pandemic are joining together to march, socially distanced, through London. The Panto Parade aims to highlight the lack of panto this year and the wider damage the theatre and live events industry are suffering and will end in Parliament Square ahead of PMQs. People excluded from government support during the pandemic will march from the Southbank to Parliament Square at the same time.
MPs will be invited to come and meet these people who are self-organising into groups of up to five to find out how the pandemic has affected them and what further support is needed.
