In the next 14 days, hundreds of Grassroots Music Venues right across the UK will find out if they will receive the funding they need to avoid permanent closure. The whole sector is on red alert for the decision about the distribution of government funding.
MVT will be sharing the names of Grassroots Music Venues across the country that are unsuccessful starting from Monday 12 October.
They are asking communities, artists and music fans to take direct action to prevent those permanent closures; writing to local councils, writing to their MPs, writing to local and national media, organising meetings or protests as required. If you want to be part of that action to prevent the loss of hundreds of grassroots music venues, join their dedicated Facebook group to stay up to date and be alerted to the venues that need your support.
