“Had a chance to renegotiate my ticket rebate deal as a TAMVA member, and I can confirm that even as a venue with a tiny capacity, the difference has been worth plenty of dough and has definitely been worth spending a little time on.”
– Nick Stewart, Sneaky Pete’s

“Without the Music Venue Trust I seriously don’t think we’d still be going.”
– Mandy Betts, Southampton Joiners
