Timing: Morning, Tuesday, 10th July 2018

Venue: Central London

The focus:

The future for the live entertainment sector in the UK - focusing on innovation, audiences and the grassroots.

To note:

  • Discussion expected on the role of live entertainment in supporting local economic growth - including developing the sector’s tourism offering; with
  • Speaking contributions from Lyndsey Jackson, Director of Operations, Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society; Councillor Huw Thomas, Leader, Cardiff Council and Board Member, Cultural Cities Enquiry and Helen Marriage, Chief Executive Officer and Artistic Director, Artichoke.

Context:

  • Follows the launch of the Cultural Cities Enquiry, which will assess current and future resource channels for culture;
  • Takes place as new rules around ticketing are introduced; and
  • Also follows the Government’s announcement of plans to strengthen planning policy to include the Agent of Change principle in order to protect grassroots venues, with the Mayor of London also backing the principle in the Draft New London Plan.

Further areas for discussion:

  • Protecting and growing the UK grassroots scene: implementing the Agent of Change principle, addressing wider issues around licensing, and meeting further challenges facing the sector - including finance, conditions for emerging artists, and the implications of Brexit;
  • Competing for audiences and driving innovation: encouraging innovation, developing immersive ways of experiencing live, attracting wider audiences, fostering creative and commercial partnerships, and tackling rising ticket costs and ticket abuse; and
  • Exploiting the socio-economic potential of live entertainment: addressing regional disparities, improving participation and inclusion, and maximising live entertainment’s contribution to local communities.
