BECTU is the UK’s media and entertainment union. From a theatre and arts perspective, we represent technical, front of house, box office and support staff in venues in the Nations and Regions, in London and in the national houses. We also have substantial freelance membership in live events. Our support for students includes our free contact scheme, the Student Register; and new entrants save 50% on their first year’s union membership. BECTU provides comprehensive support with issues at work and also offers low-cost training on a range of topics including the popular Creative Industries Safety Passport and Emergency First Aid at Work. Members can also access low-cost public liability insurance and kit cover. Do come and visit our stand to find out more and to pick up your complimentary copies of our Creative Toolkit Help Notes, essential reading for those starting out.
