“Championing The Grassroots”
We are delighted to formally announce the launch of the Music Venues Alliance, an association of venues and organisations that have united behind the work of the Trust to engage with the industry, the cultural sector, and politicians to take actions that protect, secure and improve the UK’s music venue network.
Emerging from Venues Day 2014, the Music Venues Alliance is the first significant response to the recent ICMP summary report “Understanding Small Venues”, which painted a picture of a UK live music venue circuit that is in a perilous and precarious state, facing an uncertain future at real risk despite the passion of the people involved in it.
Over 80 venues are already represented within the Alliance, alongside live music agencies, campaign groups, and cultural organisations. Membership is open to any UK venue that wishes to join the campaign, and the Alliance welcomes applications from industry bodies and professional organisations that want to add their voices to support this vital part of the sector. You can contact the Alliance at firstname.lastname@example.org
