Theatres across the UK are to receive guidance on how to prepare for Brexit, including advice around planning for the possibility of leaving the European Union under a no-deal scenario.
UK Theatre and the Society of London Theatre have been granted government funding to help the sector prepare ahead of October 31, through a series of free open sessions delivered by experts.
They will take place in Manchester, London, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Bristol and Birmingham, covering topics such as movement of people and freight, the supply chain, intellectual property and data.
The sessions are intended to help theatres prepare to leave the EU without a deal, as well as address the broader impact of exiting the EU on their business.
Attendees will be able to take part in Q&As with experts and it is hoped the sessions will encourage organisations to share information and guidance with each other.
In addition to the general briefings, two specialist sessions focusing on touring, and how the movement of people and goods between the UK and the EU will be impacted by Brexit, will be programmed for companies specifically working in this area.
The sessions will take place from September 26. More information and details of how to book can be found here.
SOLT and UK Theatre said anyone working in the sector could attend the sessions, including those who do not belong to any association or membership body.
