Story

In the current climate, Showlight has chosen not to charge for tickets but invite delegates to make voluntary donations with all proceeds going directly to selected industry charities, including Backup and Behind the Scenes.

Backup – The Technical Entertainment Charity is the UK’s registered charity that provides financial support to industry technical professionals, crew/production personnel and people working in the technical supply chain across the UK entertainment industry including those from live events, theatre, TV and film.

Backup’s primary and long-running remit is to give support to those who are seriously ill or injured, or to their surviving family members, via a tailored Support Grant, and through a range of medical grants, hardship funds and wellness support.

If you want to find out more information on Backup visit www.backuptech.uk

Behind the Scenes provides entertainment technology professionals in the US and Canada, or their immediate dependent family, who are seriously ill or injured with grants that may be used for basic living and medical expenses.

The BTS Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Initiative provides tools and resources to support entertainment industry workers and promote mental health and psychological safety. These include the Be Scene-Be Heard Peer-to-Peer Chat App, Entertainment Industry Therapist Finder, and much more.

For more information about Behind the Scenes visit www.behindthescenescharity.org

It is only thanks to the support and generous donations from companies and individuals, that both these charities are able to help the technical entertainment industry care for its own.
