From dusk on September 30, the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre will light up in red in support of their live entertainment industry colleagues affected by cancellations due to COVID-19.

#LightItInRed is an international campaign where venues across the world will be lighting their buildings in red as part of a global day of action.

The campaign - being run by a collective group of trade bodies, businesses, and freelancers affected by the shutdowns - aims to highlight the need for government support if the live events industry is to survive.

"As a live entertainment venue, we were among the first to experience the impact of the interruptions caused by COVID-19," BREC executive director Fiona de Garis said.

"While we have been fortunate to begin reopening, the future remains uncertain and we see the #LightItInRed campaign as an important show of solidarity with our industry peers."
