“Supporting venues has been an essential part of our 20-year history as the UK’s largest live guide, and we continue to work with hundreds of grassroots venues around the UK to provide them with the tools and assistance to help them fill their venues with live music fans. We’re incredibly proud to be part of Fightback Bristol, where we can build upon our ongoing work with the Music Venue Trust and the pivotal cultural centres they support.”

 

A number of venues will be stocking Fightback Lager, Music Venues Trust’s new project to raise money to help grassroots venues throughout the country, providing venues with an affordable beer that financially helps the whole sector.
