The Music Venue Trust is seeking ‘venue champions’ around the country that can help the organisation with the task of collecting data and information about the UK’s network of grass roots music venues, all of which is crucial to help MTV’s wider work.

Says the Trust: “[We work] closely with the venues that make up our 490+ strong Music Venues Alliance … For MVT to represent these venues we need to collect up-to-date information about them. This can be challenging because most of these venues are run by tiny teams who already have too much to do, so [completing] surveys and give us lots of stats is not high up their list of priorities”.

Hence the idea that music fans who regularly attend shows at these venues might like to help with this data gathering task. “We are looking for a network of volunteers”, it goes on, “to communicate with the management, staff and audiences in their favourite venue during one week in April/May 2019 to help us complete the MVT Annual Survey. This survey is an incredibly important piece of work; it supports and underpins everything we do. We are looking to appoint one champion per venue”.
