Event Details

This year our annual charity marathon is being held in support of #wemakeevents. many of you who regularly attend Battlefield Hobbies will already know, BFH is part of a wider agency who primarily manage, design, build and market live events and so since 2020 have had to let staff go, and have had to see all of their regular work disappear with little certainty still about when it can return fully. #WeMakeEvents was originally launched by PLASA in April 2020 in response to the impact of COVID-19 on their members and live events supply chain. The campaign developed into a cross-industry collaboration of over 20 industry organisations along with several companies and freelancers. This lead to the ‘Red Alert’ day of action on 11 August across the UK, followed by a global movement on 30 September spanning over 25 countries, from New Zealand to Canada. In the UK, #WeMakeEvents has selected the registered charity, Backup, Backup is a registered UK charity for the technical entertainment industry. They provide financial support to industry professionals working in the technical supply chain across the UK entertainment industry including live events, theatre, TV and film.
