Petition text

Dear Rishi Sunak,

Theatres and venues across the UK are shutting permanently because you're pushing us off a financial cliff edge with no recovery plan. We can't reopen safely. It's tens of thousands of jobs being lost and BILLIONS in revenue each year.

In your budget this week please allocate proper funding to save UK theatre including an Emergency Relief Fund and the creation of a new Cultural Investment Participation Scheme.

Please email the Chancellor about saving UK theatre

Here are some things to consider while writing:

  1. Add stories of what you or your family are experiencing right now, and why financial support for theatres is so important.

  2. Be polite and explain why this is urgent:

    - Lots of us are still unable to do our jobs as the whole theatre industry remains closed

Please remember to be polite.
