The Music Venues Trust has announced Venues Day, an event due to take place at the Southbank Centre in London on the 9th December. Aiming to give a stronger voice to the UK's smaller gig venues, the day will see discussions between representatives of those venues and the wider music industry. There will be three main panels, dealing with: best practice, noise vs nuisance, and the question 'what happens next?' Amongst the speakers on the day will be Horace Trubridge from the Musicians' Union, Attitude Is Everything's Suzanne Bull, Mike Weatherley MP, Lisa Lavia from the Noise Abatement Society and Dom Frazer from Guildford venue The Boilerroom. Venue managers, owners and promoters can apply for free delegate passes now by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration will open fully on 10 Nov. More info here.
