Touring musicians need a fair deal

Brexit has totally upended the arts industry at a time when we need it more than ever - COVID and successive sets of restrictions have shown how important the arts sector is to all of our lives.

I am reassured to hear that "the door is still open" for negotiating permit-free music tours, but for the future of the industry, this must be made certain and we need to give musicians the fair deal they deserve. 

Have a read of my letter to Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden, watch the videos below, and please do tell me your story and how important it is to you that permit-free tours are guaranteed.
