After two weeks of parliamentary recess, we want to make sure that the Government doesn’t forget about the problems that Brexit is causing for touring musicians.

Boris Johnson claimed a week or so ago that Ministers were working “flat out” on this issue. It is vital that we keep the pressure on.

The survey results will support our work, together with the ISM, to investigate the immediate impact of the UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) on touring musicians. The evidence you provide will help us persuade the Government that urgent action is needed to protect opportunities for the music profession to work in the EU.

Please answer our quick survey so we can carry on demonstrating just what a problem the Brexit deal is for musicians.

Your answers will be anonymous, and you can find out how the ISM will process your data on their website.

Take the survey now.
