#LightItInRed Campaign

Haverhill Arts Centre will be lit up in red tonight between 9.45pm and 10.30pm to highlight the desperate plight of the performance industry.
HAC will be joining hundreds of live performance venues across the country as the industry seeks to highlight the current plight of the sector.
The #LightItInRed action is designed to draw attention to the critical condition of the UK live event and entertainment industry and its need for special government support to see it through to re-starting.
Currently, unlike other industries, there is no set date for live events, shows, festivals and performances to re-start after the COVID-19 shut down.
A rescue package was announced last night by the government pledging £1.57 billion to the sector.
A spokesperson for #LightItInRed said: “While we welcome the rescue package from the Government, we await clarification about what this means for freelancers, suppliers and those in the wider theatrical and events industry. We continue to light buildings red this evening to show we are still standing by to reopen.
