Founded in January 2015, Music Venues Alliance (MVA) is a free-to-join, informal association of Grassroots Music Venues (GMVs). You must be located in the UK to be part of the MVA.
(If you do not represent a venue but want to support and hear more about MVT‘s work, please join our mailing list)
To join the MVA, all you need to do is complete the form at the ‘Apply for Membership’ button. You will hear back from us within 10 days, letting you know if your application is successful.
Joining the MVA immediately makes you part of a network of venues across the whole of the UK. With over 600 members (as of January 2020) the MVA represents a significant proportion of UK GMVs so can speak with authority on behalf of the sector. We regularly consult with members to inform our lobbying and fundraising work, share information and resources and connect people. MVA members receive invitations to networking events. We also have an MVA Facebook Group specifically for peer to peer conversation – any venue member of the MVA can post a question and gather advice from the experience of their contemporaries.
In early 2020 we are reshaping the MVA membership to clarify exactly what is on offer. All existing members will be contacted about this in the spring.
