National artist celebrity Rob and Roberta Smith gives a rousing presentation in Portcullis House, Westminster.
On Wednesday 24th January, ten All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) came together on the need to secure mobility of creative talent post-Brexit. The APPGs cover the breadth of the UK’s creative sector, including: Art, Craft & Design in Education; Children’s Media & the Arts; Dance; Design & Innovation; Music; Music Education; Performers’ Alliance; Teaching Profession; Textiles & Fashion; and Video Games.
Under the banner ‘Drawn Together’, they considered how future restrictions on the ease of movement will threaten the success of the creative sector and will ask that trade talks with the EU will create a future visa/immigration system that takes account of its needs. The event was held at Portcullis House, Westminster.

Impassioned speeches were given by many, including Sharon Hodgson MP, Paul Blomfield MP, Rob and Roberta Smith, and even Bob Henrit (drummer from The Kinks).
These are really fantastic. I am amazed and quite overwhelmed with the exceptional quality and atmosphere you’ve captured at the event. Without exception, I like each and every one. The lighting was really poor throughout the event but you would not know that from these images. They are light and uplifting images of a busy event and busy organisation. You’ve managed to get poses and in the moment, dialogue focussed group shots. They’re all brilliant...Thank you the biggest time for taking professional images and if I may say with such a professional and all-at-ease manner. You’ve got a great way at putting everyone at ease
