July 2nd: Let The Music Play



In 2019 live music added 4.5bn to the British economy, supporting 210,000 jobs across the country, as well as having an impact on a global scale. Up to 50% of the live music workforce is facing unemployment, leading to a catastrophic loss of skill, and 90% of grassroots venues are under threat of closure. We need the government to address the importance of live musicand support it in order to ensure its future once the pandemic has finally passed.

Show your support for live music and share a photo from the last gig you went to using #LetTheMusicPlay on your social networks. Thank you.
