Music Venue Trust posted an update on 22nd December 2020



For your donations, for your support, for your voices, for everything you've done this year to make sure that our vital Grassroots Music Venues will be there at the end of this crisis..... THANK YOU. This year, more than any other, we are reminded of the words of Joe Strummer, who said ‘Without people, you’re nothing’.

This year, our community has responded to this crisis with extraordinary passion and commitment.

You are our people, and that means everything to us and to the venues.

Happy Christmas from everyone at Music Venue Trust

2021: The year we Reopen Every Venue Safely. Remember: People who say it cannot be done should get out of the way of the people doing it.

Please read our full end of year message HERE


Music Venue Trust represents 670 independent UK music venues right across the UK and as a result of the current ‘lockdown’ and social distancing policies the prospects for many are grim. A lot of grassroots music venues are already operating on very thin margins and since these restrictions came in only 17% of them, equating to just 114, are currently secure for the next eight weeks.

The other 556 are at imminent risk of being permanently closed down.

The situation is dire, and it is now incumbent on music fans and the wider industry to do something about it.

Put bluntly, without these venues the opportunities for artists and audiences to connect in a meaningful way at a local level will simply disappear in a lot of cases.

And if they go they will never come back.

Please help us to help grassroots music venues to survive this unprecedented threat to their existence.

Please help us to #saveourvenues

Thanks to Hot Chip and Mr. Taylor for all the cool tunes enjoyed virtually during this crap-storm of a pandemic. Can’t give support in person, but would if I could! All the best to the music scene and the venues - see you again when we can!
