Members can now watch a replay of our “What’s the deal” panel discussion on working in the EU, through our Crowdcast account.

The MU hosted this panel in response to how the realities of Brexit and the impact on working in the EU have started to become apparent. Alongside this, as Covid-19 restrictions begin to ease, the possibility of touring the EU, or traveling to a European Country for gigs is edging closer.

The MU Deputy General Secretary, Naomi Pohl and MU National Organiser for Live Performance, Dave Webster, were joined by Jamie Njoku-Goodwin, UK Music CEO and AIM COO Gee Davy to discuss the current situation and and try to make things a little clearer.

The chat focuses on process, lobbying, and sales/merchandise rules, and how the actions of MU members have helped keep issues around Brexit in the public and political eye – as well as answering as many questions from members as possible.

Watch a replay of the panel discussion on Crowdcast now.
