    £1.5 million support for independent clubs and promoters

    Sign in to follow this  

    Arts Council England has set aside a £1.5 million for independent live music venues, clubs and promoters.

    Known as The Supporting Grassroots Live Music fund, successful applicants will be given between £1000 and £40,000 to go towards their work. The fund will support individual projects for three years, and its specific focus is on those working within the grassroots sector. Arts Council England describes grassroots venues and promoters as “those working with new, developing talent in small to mid-size venues”.

    Despite the fact that England’s current music scene is stronger than it’s ever been, independent venues have faced numerous difficulties staying open due to rising rents and business rates, licensing issues and tight profit margins. These factors have played a major role in the rise in illegal raves that continue to crop up throughout the UK.
