Venues Day 2023
The Fireworks Factory, 11 No 1 St, Royal Arsenal, London SE18 6HD, UK
Venues Day is the largest national networking event for the UK grassroots music venue sector. The 2023 theme is Behind the Scenes. The business of the live music ecosystem is to put on live music, but running a venue involves a huge amount of work that isn't about putting on the show itself. This edition will feature opportunities to speak with artists, agents, managers and promoters, as always, but the focus of the day is "the other stuff" - the practicalities of keeping a venue running, making it viable and economically sustainable. We will pull on the vast experience within the grassroots music venue sector itself - one of the things that MVT is proudest of is the Music Venues Alliance's peer to peer support - plus offer access to expert advice and tools to take away.
