Tim Brennan’s petition asks the UK Government to negotiate a free cultural work permit that gives touring professionals visa free travel throughout the 27 EU states for music touring professionals, bands, musicians, artists, TV and sports celebrities that tour the EU to perform shows and events and to secure a Carnet exception for touring equipment. Very clearly Tim’s petition chimed a chord with the public and the many UK artists and professionals who tour in the cities and nations across Europe, with over 280,000 signatures that continues to rise. On the back of Tim’s petition, the Carry on Touring campaign was established to keep the pressure on Government to go back to the negotiating table.
Carry on Touring is the umbrella campaign which all those who tour – and rely on touring - can support and sit under. It brings together voices from across the touring, cultural and creative industries sectors to secure cross-party support for Tim Brennon’s petition and campaign for a return of free EU movement for all touring artists and professionals. The strength of this campaign is that it is inclusive reaching across the sector, industry and political parties. This public facing campaign brings a spectrum of voices together to demonstrate its diversity and demographic.
