We join our friends across the country in lighting our theatre red in a show of solidarity for the live events industry
Today, 16 March 2021, marks one whole year since we, and many of our friends across the arts and entertainments industry, were forced to halt performances due to the coronavirus pandemic.
We have started the journey on the UK Government’s roadmap out of lockdown, but it will still be many months until full capacity of events are legal, and many years before the live events industry returns to pre-Covid levels.
For this week, between Monday 15 and Friday 19 March, we join our friends across the country in a show of solidarity for the live events industry by lighting our theatre red as part of #WeMakeEvents #LightItInRed campaign. Our Globe Theatre stands proudly basked in red light with a message of love and support, as we navigate our way towards a fresh beginning, and look with hope to the future ahead.

#WeMakeEvents is an international movement to highlight that the live events sector urgently needs support from local governments to survive the Covid-19 crisis. Their focus is to get Government initiatives to help the industry back to work while providing support until it can fully return to work.
