The Coronavirus pandemic has created a financial strain that has been felt across the music industry. This includes vital resources such as live music venues.

Below are a number of music venues which have signed up to our Fair Play scheme, and are individually raising funds to survive and emerge from the crisis.

If you are in a position to donate to any of these venues, please do. As our General Secretary Horace Trubridge stated in a recent blog post, it is, “important to plan for a recovery and make sure that the essential workplaces – studios and live music venues – survive and resume their business as soon as is practicable.”

We’ve included links next to each venue which you can use to share their crowdfunders directly to your Twitter or Facebook channel – so even if you’re not able to make a donation right now, you can support them by spreading the word.
