Midlands Office

Our Midlands Regional office has been working with authorities across the region to create more musician friendly busking policies and developing the Midlands cultural manifesto. We’re proud of the varied and engaging events that we’ve put on, empowering members by educating them on claiming back-logs of royalties and creating awareness of relevant organisations. 

Contact us

Spanning from Crewe down to Hereford, and over Shrewsbury to Lincoln – we’re here to protect our members from the sharks in the music industry. Whether it’s a little query about rates, or a complex issue about employment and legal advice.
