Join The Arts Industry Take Over On 7th October
Help us to save the arts ...
Posted by David Pibworth on 06/10/2020 @ 8:00AM
On Wednesday, the 7th October 2020 at 7.30pm there will be an Arts industry social media takeover. All individuals and venues involved within the arts are invited to take to social media ...
The Arts Industry needs your support on Wednesday!
They will be sharing images that showcase why they're the best at what they do. This includes amazing performances, singing, acting, dancing, playing an instrument, painting and a whole lot more. But it doesn't just stop at venues and artists!"
"Are you in technical, front of house, backstage, costume?"
Then share photographs of you at work, showing off just what you do and what you love. Are you a fan of the arts? Then share pictures of you at a show, meeting your favourite artists, or you at the stage door and more. Are you at theatre school? Share images of you in training, in rehearsals, in a performance.
This is the time that theatre and its artists need to be heard and need the support. We've been told that theatres 'aren't viable' and our artists 'are not skilled'. It's time to show the government that they are wrong, and we all need to fight back.
At 7.30pm this coming Wednesday, we have to flood our social media channels with images of the arts at its best from everyone involved. Use the hashtags #industrytakeover #morethanviable #notlowskilled #savethearts.
The shows will go on. Help us make it happen.
Until next time ...

About David Pibworth ...
David is the owner of David Pibworth Productions who provides entertainment for theatre and corporate events. This ties in very well with The Arches Theatre, an outside venue that David owns underneath a disused railway line, equidistant from Bedford, Northampton and Milton Keynes. This was one of the few venues that could operate with social distancing in place during the summer of 2020 and where they ran everything from Shakespeare to Richard Digance through the summer months.
David has been involved in light entertainment for many years, even going back as far as working on a production with Norman Wisdom in London. He has a knack of keeping in touch with everyone he's worked with and would bring such people as Chas and Dave, Kenny Ball and Acker Bilk round to play locally when the chance arose.
His company also represent the stage rights for Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, the writers of Steptoe and Son and Hancock's Half Hour. He has recently negotiated permission with Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais to produce Porridge on stage although this is all hampered by the current situation and the availability of theatres.
Next year, at the Arches Theatre, he will produce Ripping Yarns, written by Michael Palin and Terry Jones. This will be an interesting production as not only does one episode involve playing a football match, but also with the agreement of Michael Palin and the wife of the late Terry Jones, it has been decided that all the profits on this production will go to a dementia charity as Terry Jones died as a result of dementia, as did David's father and uncle.
