UK charity the Music Venue Trust (MVT) has launched #SAVEOURVENUES, a national initiative and fundraising campaign to highlight the plight of hundreds of grassroots music venues across the country whose existence is threatened by the coronavirus crisis.
‘Our grassroots music venues are special to all of us. They are the place where artists begin, the place where audiences fall in love with music, the place where our communities come together. We can’t afford to lose them.
‘We are asking artists, music fans, and our local communities to act together to prevent their own, special local music venue from permanently closing.
‘A new website with details of how you can get involved is live now at saveourvenues.co.uk. Find your local music venue on the map and donate.’
