Pet Shop Boys Perform Intimate Show to Raise Money For Independent Music Venues

Passport: Back to Our Roots is a nationwide series of one-off intimate gigs by the UK's biggest artists, supporting the independent grassroots venues that form the foundations of the UK’s live music scene.

This is your chance to watch the biggest artists play their smallest gigs – live and in person like they should be – while making a huge difference to the UK's crisis-stricken grassroots music venues, who need urgent help due to COVID-19 closures.

The gigs will be happening as soon as real shows can happen safely - these are not socially distanced, compromised experiences. Prize draw entries for each gig will be open for two weeks, and at the end of each campaign, all proceeds go to support these venues who need the money, right now. By making a £5 donation you'll be entered into the prize draw to get into the show you and a friend!

Petition: Review Need For Social Distancing Inside Theatres Before November

Given the dire situation the theatre industry is in we call on the Government to review the continued imposition of social distancing in indoor theatres as soon as possible (and on a regular basis thereafter should it need to remain in force) and well before the currently stated timeline of November

The theatre industry is benefiting from the culture bail-out but that sum cannot do more than help some venues and organisations survive the current closure. The decision not to review social distancing until November is adversely affecting recovery chances and jeopardising thousands of jobs and many venues. The rationale for keeping theatres closed for months longer must be properly debated and speedier consideration needs to be given to the possibility of lifting social distancing in theatres.
