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.

Dara O’Briain returns to the Ipswich Regent on October 20 with new show Crowd Tickler

18th October 2015

Dara O’Briain, Trustee of The Theatres Trust has been quoted in Ipswich Star.

It’s been three years since O’Briain. After a spell away in the TV studio making such successful shows like Mock the Week, The Apprentice: You’re Fired! and Star Gazing Live, he returns to his first love, live comedy. He couldn’t be happier about it.

There is nothing he adores more than a theatre, saying: “The other day, I sat in an empty theatre thinking ‘I just love these rooms.’ I’m on the board of the Theatres Trust in order to protect these wonderful buildings. It’s not about nimby-ism; it’s because I adore these places. It still gives me such a thrill to walk on stage.”
