Specialist Area:


Please join us for an event "Touring again: immigration options for the music industry post-Brexit" on Thursday, 13 May from 5pm to 6pm. 

With the hope that music festivals and concerts can start again over the coming weeks and months, the music industry is now emerging from lockdown into a post-Brexit world and facing the reality of its lack of support under the UK’s Withdrawal Agreement with the EU.

During this event, we plan to discuss: 

  • how the UK’s immigration system operates for creative persons and in particular for the music industry;
  • the immigration system’s shortcomings; and 
  • the hopes for change to the law.

You will also have the opportunity to hear from Tom Kiehl from UK Music (an industry-funded body which represents the British music industry) about the issues facing its members as they seek to recover following an exceptionally difficult period. Harriet Harman MP who has been very active in developing policies to support British musicians, will provide insights into her proposals for improving the post-Brexit regulatory landscape for the music industry.

Our panel will be: 

  • Marcia Longdon, Partner at Kingsley Napley
  • Tom Kiehl, Deputy CEO & Director of Public Affairs at UK Music
  • Harriet Harman MP
  • Robert Houchill, Associate at Kingsley Napley
