Last night several buildings in Würzburg (Theater Chambinzky, Käppele, Würzburg Cathedral and the Posthalle to name a few...) were illuminated in red as part of the "Night of Light"
Many cities throughout Germany took part in this event which was intended as an urgent appeal to the Government to ask for support in order save the culture and event industry. Theaters, event organisers, concert venues and musicians have had their income reduced to almost nothing since the COVID19 pandemic. Many are unable to cover the costs of their rent.
Unless urgent action is taken then many theatres, event locations and event based companies will go bankrupt. At some point in the future when life returns to normal we will want to go to concerts, events and theatres again....which is why more support is urgently required now to ensure that these venues can survive.
