How musicians living in the UK may be affected by Brexit

The ability to travel and work freely and easily in the EU is of paramount importance to our members.

That's why we campaigned to stay in the EU, and why we do not support the Brexit deals put forward by Theresa May or Boris Johnson. The MU will oppose any Brexit which removes freedom of movement for musicians.

We understand that members have concerns about how Brexit might affect them and so have put together some FAQs.

Don’t forget that you can always contact your regional office for advice.
