Teresa is supporting musicians and film-makers from Erith and Thamesmead by calling for local artists to enter Parliament’s two largest creative competitions, Rock the House and Film the House.
Founded by Mike Weatherley MP, the annual competitions offer the opportunity to put local musicians and film-makers in direct contact with the movers and shakers of the two industries, and to have the best of Erith and Thamesmead’s talent take front and centre stage.
Judged by the leading lights of the industries, with prizes ranging from festival slots, studio time, top-notch equipment, and your work premiered in London’s West End, the Rock the House and Film the House competitions are a pioneering opportunity to showcase what Erith and Thamesmead has to offer, raising awareness about the importance of Intellectual property (IP) to our creative industries and country.
Dates for the 2015 competitions are:
- 31 December 2014, closing date for entries to MPs;
- 1 February 2015, closing date for MPs to announce their constituency nominations;
- 18 March, Finals.

“I welcome the return of Parliament’s most-hotly contested competitions, and would urge all local musicians and film-makers to enter Rock the House and Film the House.
This is an excellent opportunity for Erith and Thamesmead to celebrate our local talent and, as all nominations are judged by industry experts, there is no finer chance for our musicians and film-makers to gain exposure.”
