Music Venue Trust reveals its #SaveOurVenues campaign has raised £3.8m

Music Venue Trust Save Our Venues

The Music Venue Trust launched its #SaveOurVenues campaign as lockdown first took hold in the UK back in April.

£3.8m has been raised by the #SaveOurVenues initiative during 2020, an end-of-year statement from the Music Venue Trust charity has revealed.

In a year when live music has been hit hard by pandemic restrictions, MVT has in turn been fighting harder to keep our cherished grassroots venues going during such a long period of inactivity, this figure adding to the Cultural Recovery Fund whose existence owes so much to the tireless work of movements like this.

“After the most challenging year the Grassroots Music Venue sector, and we as a charity, have ever faced, we wanted to try and end the year on a positive note,” the statement begins.

“Whilst we completely appreciate that the Covid crisis is far from over, we feel it is important to take a moment to acknowledge all the remarkable work that has been done this year to shield our community from the worst possible outcome of this pandemic, and to thank all of the people who made that possible.”
