A great victory for our campaign for Live music. We have campaigned long for help for grassroots venues with business rates. In 2018 we spent three months preparing a submission for the DCLG Parliamentary enquiry into live music. We are pleased to announce a major success for the campaign
Many of our suggestions have been accepted and we have now seen the first firm action, with the government agreeing to reduce rates for Grass Roots venues. Many thanks to all who supported us and our sister campaigns at Music Venues Trust etc, for all the hard work to get this taken on board.
This is only the first step on our road to securing a sound future for London’s music venues, but is a great demonstration of what you can achieve with hard work and good campaign.
