Legislation to Protect Future of Music Venues Brought to Parliament

Our music venues are facing an existential threat from outdated and porous planning and noise restriction laws. Over 35% of UK venues have closed in the last decade, and that will continue to increase until legislative change can be achieved.

This is where grassroots venues are vitally important, without these social hubs and the...
