The Live Entertainment Works! campaign has now launched. The aim of the campaign is to approach local venues asking them to display the poster supporting live entertainment and get across the message that the change in licensing law means that it is now easier to put on acts in venues with a capacity of 500 or below. For further information contact Mike Day by phone on 020 7670 0235 or firstname.lastname@example.org

The worlds of the media, arts and entertainment are often seen as glamorous, but a survey of 4,000 workers has revealed these industries are "hotspots" of bullying, with more than half of those questioned (56%) saying they had been bullied, harassed or discriminated against at work.
People who contributed to a survey, commissioned by the Federation of Entertainment Unions, ranged from household names, top screenwriters and performers to those at the beginning of their careers.
The results showed shocking levels of ill-treatment and inappropriate behaviour and a culture of silence, with only a third of those suffering bullying and harassment reporting the incidents.
