Our Appeal To Support Those In The Entertainment Industry

18th August, 2020

Since 1908, the Royal Variety Charity has supported all those, both young and old, who've worked on the stage, in the wings, in front of a camera, or behind it, as well as all those who have spent their lives working in the numerous support industries dedicated to entertainment. The Charity owns and operates Brinsworth House, a not-for-profit care and nursing home in Twickenham, as well as running a nationwide grants scheme.

 

Thousands of people who work in the entertainment industry face desperate problems each day, even in a 'normal' year. The strong majority of performance industry workers live from 'job-to-job', from 'season-to-season' - many spending significant periods with no work at all & with little ability to make plans for their futures or to provide themselves with any security should they have an accident, or fall ill. Covid-19 has made this situation for our industry more critical than ever before.”
