- Michael’s quoted in the Government release:
“I am delighted to have worked, alongside our Live Music group, with the Home Office to identify a solution so that non-EU artists and their crews can still enter the UK via Ireland under a Certificate of Sponsorship.
The live music industry, which contributes around £1 billion to the economy, will put this into practice so that we can continue to attract the biggest and most talented global artists to perform at our world-leading concerts, festivals and venues.”Previous Story: Students need you and you need them!Next Story: Medicine Festival Invite You to The Full Moon Medicine Song Circle This Saturday
