THE Backstage centre, Purfleet, is literally on red alert.
The iconic venue, which has hosted some of the biggest musical artists in the world, will be illuminated in red on Wednesday night to symbolise the industry’s current struggle, and red alert status.
The aim is to highlight the significant ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on amazing live events venues – and the people and professionals who work within them and alongside them.
It’s clear, there is a desperate need for Government support – and this help needs to come along sooner rather than later.
Around the world arts and event venues will be illuminated on Wednesday (30 September 2020) between 20:00 and 23:00 GMT to highlight the Red Alert theme
Brian Warrens, director of the Backstage Centre, said: “We are committed to supporting the hard- working companies, freelance professionals, supply chain and everyone in front of, and behind the scenes.”
