Guidance to help you set up and run a music venue

Setting up and running a grassroots music venue in the current climate can be challenging. 

The Music Venue Trust has produced two free downloadable guidance documents to support individuals and organisations wanting to open a grassroots music venue and once they have, how to run one. 

The guides are intended to be practical and straightforward, while linking to supporting materials both in the document and to online resources. Their production has been supported by the Mayor of London, as part of the Cultural Infrastructure Plan, and Ticketmaster.
