North of England Office

North of England Office

We continue to enthusiastically and excitedly make sure that music is adequately represented in the devolved powers of the Northern cities. We work on issues from buskers through to orchestral players – from sending over someone’s public liability certificate, to dealing with complex legal or employment issues. 

Contact us

We are the first point of contact with a reach that spans from Cheshire in the West to Grimsby in the East, from Manchester to Newcastle, Hadrian's Wall to the Roman Forts and the Isle of Man.
