Mayor acts on rescue plan to save London's music venues

19th October 2015

The Mayor of London Boris Johnson threw his weight behind the campaign to halt the drop in the number of music venues in the capital. Since 2007 London has lost 35 per cent of its grassroots music venues and it is feared that if this decline continues it could have major implications for the long term future of a creative and cultural sector that feeds into the UK’s £3.8 billion music industry.

The London’s Grassroots Music Venues Rescue Plan and the Mayor’s response can be downloaded from www.london.gov.uk/musicvenues. An action plan taking forward recommendations will be published in early 2016.
