THE SHOWMEN’S GUILD OF GREAT BRITAIN

Dear Colleagues,

Earlier today the debate on DCMS sector support took place. ..

… The debate itself was constrained due to time but, following the successful All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Fairs and Showgrounds meeting recently, David Linden, MP for Glasgow East and Secretary & Treasurer of the APPG; used the majority of his speech to make a pitch on behalf of Showmen. ..

( watch from 15.29 onwards – an edited version will also be available soon). ..

The APPG meeting included Parliamentarians meeting with the Showmen’s Guild, with colleague associations AIS; ACES; SIRP and ACP (for Circus). …

… This afternoon (Thurs. 8th Oct 2020), we also received details of a specific contact within the DCMS (Department of Culture Media and Sport) to liaise with; another request we made of our APPG at the meeting. …

… They have additionally been working on updating outdoor events guidance; following our discussions with them at DCMS….

The lobbying goes on so that the shows can go on…
