“Small, Grassroots Music Venues are essential to the health of the contemporary music scene in the U.K. Without this network, new artists have no opportunity to cut their teeth and essentially train for the bigger stages which provide the U.K. with a phenomenal global musical reputation as well as providing a significant financial boost to the overall economy.”


This year’s Venues Day is shaping up to be our biggest event ever, with over 150 venues already confirmed as attending and a wide and diverse range of panels, speakers, and networking opportunities to shape the day. We will be making a series of announcements over the next few days about programming, funding and information networking opportunities at the event that you won’t want to miss.
