Creative United and the Music Venue Trust are launching a new partnership in October that will offer support to Grassroots Music Venues.
‘The One, Two Project’, will help support and develop the work of small music venues across the country, aiming to deliver £40,000 of one-on-one guidance, workshops on business planning and skills development as well as access to loan finance enabling music venues to invest in their buildings and businesses.
The project will be available exclusively to members of the Music Venues Alliance Trade Association, and delivered by Creative United’s Creative Industry Finance team.
Strategic Director of the Music Venue Trust Beverley Whitrick, said: “Through initiatives like The One, Two Project, we aim to support Grassroots Music Venues in assessing how they currently run and how they can operate more efficiently, so they can continue to offer the creative community a place to experiment, develop, train and grow and offer audiences a better quality experience”.
Creative United is a Creative Industry Finance programme supported by Arts Council England (ACE) in partnership with a number of commercial, social and alternative finance providers. Music Venue Trust represents and advocates for Grassroots Music Venues.
