MARTIN AUDIO LIGHTS HQ IN RED TO AMPLIFY INDUSTRY PLIGHT

Martin Audio’s British headquarters in High Wycombe got a dramatic new look as part of Monday night's #LightItInRed campaign, which saw 700 buildings of every kind across the UK lit up in ‘emergency red’ to amplify the voice of the event and entertainment industry during this critical time.

We continue to support all industry parties and partners in this fight.
Dom Harter, Martin Audio

Since early March, the UK events industry has been mostly without work. All kinds of major events are currently prohibited due to the COVID-19 crisis. Corporate events, conferences, concerts, festivals, weddings, trade shows and theatrical performances are no longer able to go ahead. This is leaving an entire industry dormant, with over twenty-five thousand businesses and over half a million workers throughout the UK directly suffering the ill effects.

While the recent UK Government support for arts and venues has been welcomed, more direct support for our sector is needed to safeguard many thousands of livelihoods and the industry of which we are all deeply proud.

Martin Audio’s Managing Director, Dom Harter, said: “The live events industry is on a precipice. Unless it receives urgent funding to safeguard its future, the shockwave of the resulting collapse will impact hundreds of thousands of jobs in businesses up and down the country and ultimately have a significant detrimental impact on the culture of Great Britain. We continue to support all industry parties and partners in this fight. I would also like to offer my thanks to Nigel Meddemmen, our in-house lighting specialist, and Sophie Hoult for her stunning photography of our headquarters.”
