Support from UK & Devolved Governments

This advice has been updated on 20 October 2020. We suggest MVA members check recent announcements on the Music Venues Alliance Facebook Group or contact their Coordinator for detailed information.

Since March MVT has been sharing the latest information available on the various measures made available by Government to support Grassroots Music Venues (GMVs) during the COVID-19 crisis. The pace of change in autumn 2020 makes it extremely challenging to keep a publicly accessible resource up to date, particularly when some are UK-wide, but many are specific to devolved nations, or even regions within each nation.

Across all nations of the UK, MVT continues to work with government to ensure that the entire sector, wherever located, is able to access a full range of support so that permanent closures are averted, including any available cultural funding. MVA members can access this information by contacting their Regional or National Coordinator.
