Founded in 2015 by freelance creatives, Curtain Call is a technology and solutions-based platform for the entertainment industry. From ideas to project delivery, Curtain Call is committed to pioneering practical, technological and ethical solutions.

The journey started with hundreds of hours backstage, speaking with thousands of freelancers, producers, creatives and technicians. The result was a self-published coffee table book ‘Curtain Call: A Year Backstage in London Theatre’.

The first Curtain Call website was launched in 2016 and has been servicing the theatre and live entertainment industry since with thousands of job opportunities, exclusive access content and a growing database of professionals and their linked credits.

Advocacy work is another key part of our work right now, and Curtain Call recently joined forces with Freelancers Make Theatre Work to produce ‘The Big Freelancer Survey’, the largest independent survey of its kind, ever, of the freelance workforce in the UK. Other groups that we work with include the Freelance Task Force and #WeMakeEvents.

The marathon continues, and Curtain Call is not standing still.   With a strong brand, deep knowledge of the industry and robust relationships, we are developing the tools that are needed to serve the community that we love – right now.

Curtain Call goes above and beyond in its service and advocacy for all freelancers in the industry.

I don’t know any small organisation to have done more good in this pandemic than these guys. They were already brilliant but the recent drastic change in the industry and their response to it has elevated them to being an invaluable organisation who truly have all our best interests at heart.

I want to write an essay on how much I love them but have only been asked for a quote. Fools!”
