Dear {Your MP's name}

As a constituent, I am writing to ask you to protect musicians’ ability to work in the EU after Brexit.

The Incorporated Society of Musicians’ Save Music campaign is calling on the Government to preserve freedom of movement for musicians. This would allow musicians to continue to travel to and within the EU for work as they do now.

Research by the Incorporated Society of Musicians, the UK’s professional body for musicians, has shown that a third of musicians rely on work in the EU for at least half their income.

Barriers to mobility such as visas and carnets, and their associated cost and administrative burden, would severely harm musicians’ ability to work in the EU after Brexit.

If current rights around freedom of movement cannot be preserved, then the Save Music campaign supports a two-year working visa, which will allow musicians to tour between the UK and EU for two years without the administrative and financial cost of obtaining new visas.

Musicians must be able to travel freely to and within EU countries after Brexit. Please support the Save Music campaign, and write to the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union asking them to ensure musicians’ mobility rights are protected after Brexit.

Yours sincerely

{Your name}
