20.09.17 What does Brexit mean for the music industry?

UK Music has lined up a brilliant panel of experts to help visitors to the Labour Party conference try to work out what Brexit could mean for the music business and more than 140,000 people who depend on it for a living.

Our event will take place in Brighton on Tuesday September 26 at 1pm in “Arundel 2” at the Holiday Inn – just a couple of minutes along the seafront from the Brighton Centre.

The panel will feature:

•      Kevin Brennan MP – Shadow Deputy DCMS Secretary

•      Sharon Hodgson MP – co-chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Music

•      Stewart Wood – a Labour peer, a former Number Ten adviser on Culture, Media and Sport

What will leaving the EU mean for touring bands, orchestras and other artists who need to travel for their work?  What could Brexit mean for intellectual property and copright?  We hope to explore and discuss these and other issues that delegates might raise.

Musicians’ Union general secretary Horace Trubridge will chair the event which we hope will provide an informative insight into what leaving the EU could mean for the music business.

You can read about the huge role that the music industry play in the UK economy in our Measuring Music 2017 report that was published this week here.

Refreshments will be provided.  We hope to see you there!
